When news first broke about the +Neiman Marcus credit card hack, the company estimated that as many as 1.1 million cardholders could have been affected. New information suggests that the hack may not have been as widespread as once feared.

Many people opt for an emergency credit card for their teenager, but this may not be the wisest choice. As a parent, you have a number of financial options. Which one you choose will depend primarily on costs and the financial responsibility of your teenager. That is a decision that only you can assess.

Why are so many Americans who have bank accounts using prepaid cards? To monitor and budget their finances. Instead of having an unlimited source of money from a bank account, users can deposit a limited amount of money onto a prepaid card to ensure they keep their spending to a minimum.

Airlines are now rewarding how much members spend rather than just the number of miles they accumulate.

The FakePlastic.net site was used by criminals known as “carding” or “cash out” crews. These crews buy stolen card numbers which are typically obtained through a hacking or skimming operation, such as installing a specialized skimmer in an ATM machine or point-of-sale terminal. The stolen data is then imprinted on a blank card and used to make unauthorized transactions on the accounts of unsuspecting card customers.
