Heh...if I came on these boards and complained that some a-hole used my credit card to buy something you would be one of the first to tell me I was stupid for not doing anything when I knew there was a good chance my card info was compromised.

That said, things happen and I doubt this will be the last time this will happen to a company I deal with, especially if I use the card with online vendors often. But no, it was not an over reaction, I just followed the advice of my credit card company when I called them. They are the experts and I listened to them.

I've had my CC number hijacked and I'd be taking the same precautions. This is really, really ugly though due to the massive scope of the breach.

I totally agree on the cancelling of the CC. Much less of a hassle than dealing with the fallout of not doing so.
It is easy to say overreaction when it isn't your own persoanl banking at risk, it is a whole other ball game when it is however.

This is terrible that such a breach happened, but ineveitable.
When Apple starts making the same amount of Market Share, it will happen to them too.

I had my debit card info stolen 3 days before Christmas and recently my Credit Card compromised. In cases like this there is no such thing as overreacting. Cancelling the card asap is the only way to go.
Being the victim of fraud puts things in a very up close & personal perspective.

P.S. Sony could have moved faster on informing their users.

I've been on the receiving end of my credit card and debit card scammed.

There are security measures in place by the companies who give you these in case of weird activity.

There hasn't been ANY given proof by Sony saying the CC info has been compromised they say it MIGHT have been.

So everyone over reacts and goes off the deep end.

It has been compromised, their whole network was. They cannot say it is safe. I'll be changing my CC card tonight, my CC's call center was closed when i called them last night Fuuuuuuuu. Also need to change a few passwords, like for the email I used for my PSN account, which I use the same password for on both, and it is also tied to my Paypal account.

Precisely why I don't have any CC information in any of my online crap.
