I really just find it disgusting that these bottom feeders if you will are invading our privacy even thru the use of the transactions we make online! It sort of makes you yearn hfor the days when you could just say that the check is in the mail and that was the only alternative that you had. Internet is great but it can also be a great way to lose everything to thieves.
