    My CC got hacked once and since then I only use randomly generated secure account numbers. Once the number is linked to a specific vendor it can only be used at that vendor. Several CC issuers offer similar security features.

    Well at least ya have a well earned ECF nomer!

    Once ya realize that it's not just the vaping industry being 'hacked', maybe you'll appreciate the efforts of our vendors to let you know of the issue... <click>

    I love Madvapes, great vendor. There are ways to protect yourself when ordering online anyhow.

    Rats. It figures I placed my first order with them this weekend. Time to watch the account online like a hawk! I'm going to reorder, because I really want the pre-made NR-R-NR coils they have... I'm lazy!

    Thank you for mentioning this.. when i first read about these issues i immediately went to virtual numbers.. it blows my mind when i read the threads about people's cards getting compromised .. and someone will chime in with.. "this is the 3rd time on the same card!" What in the hell? If you don't take measures after getting hit the first time.. then it's hard to feel sympathy.

    Props to Mad Vapes. I got the same email. I immediately re-ordered, because I have good fraud protection on my debit card so I'm not worried. Plus I've yet to see any suspicious activity on my account.

    The vendor was hacked and you're blaming them, go figure. No wonder things are so messed up.

    Well, don't be to harsh... There is a "reasonable expectation of privacy" (to use legal speak) when ordering from an online vendor...

    My reasonable expectation of privacy was given up long ago by tptb.

    Nope. I got one, too, after my debit card get hacked. It's the only way I buy anything vape related online anymore.
