Data security breach in Atlanta? Surely it couldn't have been one of the affirmative action hires from a prison furlough program that would have had the audacity to do this. It was probably a European American head of security - as portrayed in the Damon Wayons movie "Mo' Money."
Good on Mr. Van Dyke for pointing out how little credit card companies will do to protect the consumer after it's their fault the consumer has been violated. Good think our politicians both left and right have such terrific relationships with these banks - I'm sure that means they'll hurry up and do what's best for the consumer in short order.

How can we possibly move from a paper system to an electronic system with confidence when this kind of thing happens? I have yet to pay a bill on line, and probably won't until I'm certain this stuff won't happen. BTW, I got 2 calls: one from Visa, the other from my health plan administrator. So I've been compromised x 2.

With the new BART system now in place just about anything can happen.
