TrumpetPower! writes "NPR just reported that Western Union is recommending that customers who used their web page to send money should cancel their credit cards after somebody cracked their online credit card database. As I type this, the Western Union homepage simply states, "Our Web site is temporarily out of service We apologize for any inconvenience To find the nearest agent location plase call: 1-800-325-6000."" Not much online yet besides the AP brief. (Normally we don't post this stuff, but its getting submitted a lot, and it is kinda a big deal). Lends more credibility to the disposable credit card concept.
