And perhaps, some pictures are worth more than that. It would seem that some inherently foolish folks out there have posted pictures on twitter of their credit cards – numbers and expiration dates readable. Really, people? Sometimes truth really is crazier than fiction. In fact, Twitter user @NeedADebitCard finds those unscrupulous pictures and retweets them – combatting stupidity with a clear message: Quit posting pictures of your debit cards!
One might assume that the average computer user would be smart enough not to invite fraud by sharing their credit card numbers on twitter. Unfortunately, in this case, one would be wrong. When people are looking for interesting things to post, sometimes common sense goes right out the window.
This is just one more reminder that well-intentioned computer users need a layer of protection to combat the frequent absence of common sense.
