From: New York City, U.S.A.
Coincidently each time it was hacked, shortly before I had made a purchase from Matrix/BlueSnap for a game.
And this means exactly nothing. I have been a Matrix customer for over 15 years and I have purchased close to 50 games from their stores, not ONCE have my card details been hacked from Matrix or their processor, that I can pinpoint. I have had my details stolen from a USPS pos reader and many other places, but not once from here. I get it you don't want your details stored, that's your right even if I think it's being a bit over-the-top.
But, if that's the case why haven't you looked into other ways to buy the games you want. You could use Steam? Maybe they don't store your details? You could get a Visa gift card and use it only for this purchase, viola, let them store away and good luck if the details are compromised. You could use Paypal, I have never had a bad transaction through them and I buy stuff ALL the time through eBay (over 5000 transactions). The point is that until they make a secure payment method that is truly unhackable and unable to be compromised, this is a sad fact of life. The other point as I mentioned I have had my cards (yes, plural) hacked many times, I have never suffered a loss in terms of actual $$$. The USPS pos hack I mentioned above, the scum got me for $3700 through my debit card. USAA not only replaced the loss of all $$$, they also overnighted me a card (for free) as I was on business in Washington D.C. at the time. So anyway, just my .02 cents worth.
