Next up, taxes...

Thanx for posting your credit card details ! :-)

aivalli: The card's fake. It's missing several security features (such as 5582 being printed on the card as well as being embossed, a stylized "V" by the expiration data, and a correct hologram), and even more importantly, the number isn't valid since the check digit isn't correct.

even more importantly, the number isn't valid since the check digit isn't correct.
Besides, everyone knows that Visa cards start with a 4; a card number starting with a 5 suggests Mastercard. American Express starts with a 3, I think Diners may start with a 3 too but have a different number of digits, and I don't remember for JCB.

I'll betca there isn't a CVV2 code on the back of that jpeg either... :-)

Of course it's fake, but still an interesting take on WOW and all that kinda stuff :)

PLEASE someone give me the numbers that would let me have a go at WOW without potentually endangering my credit card number. PS: I dont have a credit card. If i did this would not be an issue. Didnt Blizzard ever think of the under 18 year olds that may want to play their game? BASTARDS!!!
