Quoted - on credit card breach

I'll keep this list of pickups updated regularly. So far, here's who we've got:

I'm in debt, please steal my identity. Willing to trade or best offer...

Agreed Terry.

Free to good home, one case of student debt. Guarenteed to cause a bigger headache than any of the ones incurred while creating said debt.

No offer refused. lol

Anyone who steals me CC numbers is going to be seriously, seriously disappointed...

My credit card got hit a couple of years ago. I wonder if it had anything to do with this?

No matter: the CC company caught it before they managed to do anything.

Are prepaid credit cards (a la "Green Dot") then safer, I wonder, as far as compromised information goes? Those are not linked to any bank account, after all...
