UPDATE: The site system won’t let customers change credit card numbers in the middle of “3 part payment” subscriptions. Here are options and strategies.
Yesterday’s news item is a cause of fear and I had to do something to remove my credit card number from eHarmony’s servers — at least their main servers.
Of course my card number is already in eH’s computer data backups somewhere since the number has been there for seven weeks. There’s little I can do to remove my number from those backups.
I realised that the only way for the Account Settings screen to remove my number is if I replace it with another credit card number. So, I need a dead yet valid card number.
I searched the web and found this list on Graham King’s website:
VISA 16 digit
Feel free to replace your number with these dead yet valid numbers. The stupid Account Settings page doesn’t check whether two or two million people gave the same card number. Hmph, I even set it to renew automatically — thus giving me brownie points when Customer Service sees it. Ha! I foiled your plans, Dr. Warren!
