    Damn! My first digit is a 4 too, which means he's down to 10^15 possible combinations! Time to change the CC again...

    Did you know Bank of Italy stems from a small operation consisting of loaning money to displaced citizens of San Francisco after a major fire?
    Did you know that the bank of Italy began a credit system using a "Credit card" that became known as "Visa?"
    Did you know that the Bank of Italy changed it's name to the Bank of America to improve reception?
