    Previous Discussion. Curious that it took this long for the mainstream media to pick this up.

    Have banks ever been know to put out made up CC details that are reserved for tracking purposes so that when that number is used it is instantly flagged up as a fraudulant transaction? or would that be some form of entrapment? and how would that idea work across multiple countrys where it might not be classed as "as illegal",
