I was wondering what the best way to avoid having a credit account hacked when buying online.
I would think the services that involve very low credit limits, and the absence of money in the account is the best way. It completely eliminates the idea of password theft from my local PC or from the Internet company that stores my information.
Toward that end – by buying a visa or mastercard Credit Card in a drug store and filling it as needed, say using cash withdrawn from a debit account – wouldn’t that be the safest way, even if not the most convenient ?
