According to a relative of mine in law enforcement this attack is already in play in several major cities. Generally targeting Apple stores as the cards that are collected are more-likely to have higher limits and available balances. The CC thief generally stands at the entrance to the store with a backpack, and is automatically uploading card details to a central host. Those details are then written to blank cards and used in Casinos in Las Vegas within a matter of hours.

I worked for a contracting company @ HP in Boise. Issue here is that the people who are suing(Adecco, VeriTest, Manpower) are not contractors. They are employees of their respective companies. The companies(Adecco, VeriTest, Manpower) pay the paychecks, the employees just happen to work at an HP building. The story would be different if these people were independent contractors, contracted directly to HP, but they're not. Not to mention, the people quoted in the article no longer work for any of those companies... I'm wondering why they left employment in the first place. -Phixxr
