If your credit card has ever been hacked then you can take solace in the fact that credit card hackers can face very stiff penalties and even long term jail sentences for their credit card hacking exploits.
The notorious credit card hacker Robert Gonzalez could face jail time of between 17 and 25 years for his credit card crimes that involved stealing credit card numbers and debit card numbers to the tune of 170 million total over the course of 3 years. Gonzalez would steal and then resell credit card numbers in conjunction with a group of Russian credit card hackers.
While Gonzalez holds the undisputed record as the best credit card hacker of all time as far as total number of credit card numbers stolen it seems that there are new reports almost every day of data breaches at large companies whose customer’s credit card information becomes compromised.
