Yet another thread... I found a Visa Debit Card.

any suggestions?
I have the letter they sent with it.

Ordering things to my address would be too suspicious and everywhere needs a PIN :(

    you can order stuff online. None of that requires a pin. Only the card number and the three digit code on the back.

    Buy virtual goods that you can then exchange for money of real stuff.

    buy bitcoins then exchange it back to USD. It's a form of hi-tech money laundering.

    That's pretty genius. Actually, I would hold on to the bitcoins for a little while, their value is going nowhere but up, but that's for the Money forum.

    MEAT, i would love to know why you think the value of bitcoins is going to grow.


    I think bitcoins are going to stay very still for a long time. The small numbers of people using the currency basically means that it's going to be a very stable. The individual amounts exchanged don't usually exceed a few thousand dollars (and are generally under $500)

    The initial exponential growth was due to every man and his dog getting excited and buying a little bit.

    I think it will boom when bitcoin becomes an accepted currency at online retailers, such as amazon and ebay.
    And I do not doubt that they will start accepting bitcoin in the near future, simply because it makes more sense for them, because bitcoins can be transferred directly to the seller, but handling a paper currency requires a bank.

    Protip: If you've stolen a credit card (or even found one, in your case), NEVER order things to your OWN HOUSE! That's possibly the stupidest idea you could come up with - for god sake, order your stuff to a safe house somewhere. Somewhere that's not traceable to you, where you can watch for cops on the look-out (because who knows, they might be on your trail for using a stolen credit card), and where you can retrieve the goods with ease.

    Ordering to your own house is just telling everybody that you stole the card, and telling them where you live :facepalm:

    Well you just posted your story on a public website. I'm sure any fed agent viewing this, worth their salt would be able to find you if they wanted to. So good luck with that.

    I can't belive how haphazard the OP is :facepalm:

    Also, i doubt any US company is going to accept Bitcoins. The US gov likes to control people with finances (see wikileaks and Visa), a decentralized p2p currency like bitcoin will be a nightmare for them. Remember these companies still have to pay tax, the gov can make it very painful for them.


    Also such a thing has already been tried with e-gold and was shut down exactly because people were doing what i suggested for you to do. It was also deemed an illegal currency. There's another company that suffered a similar fate (can't remember the name). They were all centralized and for-profit, as apposed to Bitcoins which is regarded as a public service (with very much the same motivations as Tor) by the cryptoanarchists.

    On a few occasions I was lazy and carded a few things to my house, but only when using foreign CC's and ordering from foreign sites and purchases under $100 each.

    You should have invested in Bitcoins at that point, seriously.

    you didn't get caught because they're laziness and completely lack a a sense of civic duty. It would cost them more to pursue it than refund the owner. You're lucky.
