Lookicon Gift Card Thieves

It's true:
http://www.snopes.com/fraud/sales/giftcard.asp

If you buy Gift Cards from a display rack that has various store
cards you may become a victim of theft. Crooks are now jotting
down the card numbers in the store and then wait a few days and
call to see how much of a balance they have on the card.

Once they find the card is "activated", and then they go online and
start shopping. You may want to purchase your card from a customer
service person, where they do not have the Gift Cards viewable to
the public. Please share this with all your family and friends.
And unfotrunately, it's true:

thanks for the info...also some stores have the ones that they actually have to scratch the grey stuff off to see the number...those are a good choice as the cashier scratches it when u purchase it..happy shopping
