who in the ever living fuck would post a pic of their credit card, obscured or not, online? better yet, WHY in the ever living fuck would you want to post a picture of your CC online? what possible reason could there be?
@carl669 I’d imagine people that feel like they’ve finally become an adult by getting their first ever credit card might want to prove that it happened… By proving they are complete idiots in the process.
@nogoodwithnames I’ve taken photos of my credit card before, both front and back. If your card gets lost or stolen, the phone number is on the back and they will ask you for the number that is on the front.
It also comes in handy when I want to make an online purchase. I don’t have to go to where I keep my wallet and come back to the computer. (No, I don’t keep my wallet on me all the time.)
The part to worry about is protecting those photos so nobody can see them and they don’t sync with any online service.
This level of stupidity reminds me of the old “passwords are encoded in chat” prank people used to fall for.
Asshat: Crap, typed my password into chat, hope no one saw it
Accomplice: lolwat? All I saw was *******, let me try mine
Asshat: neato! lol
Sucker: hey wait, it didn’t work for me…
@Nuurgle lolzactly. also a reason why i never answer those questions with real answers. instead i use a random non-word that’s easy for me to remember. people still occasionally seem surprised that you can do this, as if the site/company/computer/code “knows” if you’re telling the truth or something, haha.
In the name of boasting I’ve seen people post their concert tickets online. I guess through the barcode and all the rest of the info. someone could duplicate your tickets. Maybe someone could fill in the blanks here of why that’s a bad idea.
@growyoungagain Actually had a local news person post a pic of her Eagles ticket on Facebook. I messaged her, explaining why she shouldn’t do that. At least she deleted it pretty quickly. I would’ve felt bad if someone stole her ticket, mostly because she’s insanely hot.
