Which is why I have credit reporting locked at all three major agencies, at an agency that performs a similar service for checking/savings accounts, and a fifth agency that does much the same for utilities, and have recently signed my wife and I up for identity theft detection/protection.

Sure, it seems like everyone is doing something to minimize the risk. But, the point is, if you have a CC and live long enough, you will get hacked.

I have a Chase credit card and it seems I get hacked once a year. It's happened so often that it's kind of an annual ritual. Mad
