My credit card information was just stolen -- again. This is the fifth time in the past three years, which, if polling my Facebook friends is any indication, is about par for the course. It happens to everyone, it seems, about once every nine months.

The unrestricted flow of information over the Internet and social networks provides an opportunity to one of mankind's most glorious times. If we don't protect the public, this could easily become a mean of chaos, repression and dominance.
It's always good to know what to do in case lightening does strike and someone fraudulently uses your card. Left unchecked, they might try to run up bills, drain your checking account or worse -- steal your identity.
