Here’s a story that came out today about an American Airlines employee who managed to steal at least 350 credit card numbers and to use them to get over $480,000 in merchandise, without being caught. She was only caught when someone else (possibly an accomplice, I’ve heard that thieves sometimes fall out) informed on her. The article doesn’t say over what span of time this was.
The part that got me curious was this:
So, care to speculate on how she recorded the account numbers? If she was working at the counter, she would have been in full view of any number of other employees. I certainly hope that whatever technology she used is found; otherwise it seems like one would be nearly defenseless against this sort of thing.
