I wonder if she had a funny cat name like fluffy?:p I've heard the current electronic money system was all designed and set up in the 1970's and hasn't changed much.

But I'm wondering...

You know those kiosks that are put up in malls sometimes with a representative trying to get to you sign up for their credit card (you know, the one's that lure you with that free gift)...well, what if I put Hunter's name, his DOB, etc. and was then actually sent the card? Can I use it to make...uh...web purchases of dog treats and toys then not pay for them since it was the bank's fault for issuing the card to Hunter. Plus, what are they gonna do? Send the repo guys to Hunter and take away his food bowl? :laughing: :dog:

:offtopic: That reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Santa's Little Helper got a credit card and Bart bought everything his little heart desired. :evil:
