Im impatient and don't want to wait the extra week-week and a half for my mail to reach HK. Â Anyways I called both of my banks and neither offer the MBNA function. Â Has anyone successfully faxed JT or mailed them? Â How did you go about filling out the order form? Â (9 pages could take awhile).
I'm not trying to convince you to do anything that you're not comfortable doing, but I would bring up an argument that Bruce Schneier, who is one of the foremost experts in cryptography and computer security, has made about this. Your real protection from fraud is the combination of law and lender policies that limit your liability for fraudulent purchases made with your credit card number. Jantzen Tailors may not have an encrypted order form. That just means that your number can be more easily intercepted between your computer and Jantzen's. If I wanted to steal credit card numbers, I would't bother trying to sniff for unencrypted packets traveling between a buyer and a seller; I'd just hack the seller's site and steal numbers en masse. The most sophisticated armored car transport system in the world does no good if the money is put in an unlocked and unguarded filing cabinet once it gets to the bank.
