Credit Card Fraud: People as Weak Points in The Chain

There is interesting article about credit card fraud at:,3604,1562638,00.html

So, once again, Bruce Schneier was right in his book “Secrets & Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World”. He said: “Security is not a product; it itself is a process.
