Just a heads up for you CD consumers. This might be even bigger than the Target breach.

Haven't shopped there for a while, ever since their CEO made some stupid comments that made me realize I didn't want to support the company.

We will constantly hear of identity theft until we fix the system. Would somebody explain to me why we cannot have positive picture ID on our credit cards, on bank teller screens, and on cash register screens at the stores we shop at? We have heard many times about new technology to stop this kind of theft - I just think we overlook the obvious. Perhaps, one day, we will have finger print scans, eye scans or DNA test to verify our identity? Why wait - let's get our pictures on our financial transactions. It is almost like these companies don't really want to stop this theft.

It doesn't really matter where you use your card, someplace you shop with it will likely be hit at some point if it hasn't already.

HD is still claiming that PIN numbers weren't compromised but it doesn't really matter, with enough info the criminals can actually change your PIN

Isn't about time to make it work? Do you want to continue to hear about one of these crimes after another? Why do we have to stay on the same track - make it work. I should say; make anything work that guarantees our security.
