Verification for the very naive....

....a long long time ago in a land not so far away....

A pron hoster decided it would be an excellent wheeze to verify people by capturing their credit card number just to prove they were over 18.... unfortunately....

1. They were too stupid to understand your average teen was quite capable of acquiring number, expiry date and CVV off their Dad's card and it was a doddle, and assuming they didn't actually go for signing up no-one knew.... (this doesn't even go as far as signing up and saying if you spot it I will tell Mum it must be you)

2. They were stupid enough to retain all these card details even though they never charged anything meaning they still had breaches without making a penny

What goes around comes around vicar
