I just got a few emails confirming that another individual used my credit card info to buy MUSHKIN memory. I talked to the people at MUSHKIN and they said its common?

I was going to order the $47 RAM but chnaged my i mind at the last second and didn't buy it. Another guy, apparently using my URL info (I have no idea how he got it-- I DID NOT send anyone a link) did buy it.

I have logged onto MUSKIN and seen other people's info butu had no idea that they could order.

Be very cautious out there.

Doesn't Mushkin know where it's shipped to? IF that's the case, then isn't very easy to track down this person for legal options? Also, I'm sure you're credit card company will take the responsibilities, almost all of them do now.

Good luck.

Yes, the point here is that the sight is not 100% secure and now I have take time out of my day to correct a problem on their site.
