Just some Google bashing.  I found a similar story in video format but you can do your own searches if it is that
important to you!

Thanks for the links, it makes more sense. The OP said that he was charged on his new card without authorizing, then told that Google purchases CC numbers. That leads to the impression that Google buys credit card numbers then charges things on them.

The above links make it much more clear what Google is doing with these, and it really shouldn't lead to unauthorized charges. I don't agree with the arrangements between Google and the CC companies, but it doesn't appear to be fraud.

These are two different stories altogether.
If the first could be backed up by evidence, it could be a big thing.

Would not surprise me really if Google would be acting criminal, but would be nice to have some kind of proof.

Years ago when Amazon was some junk little operation, I was an avid shoppers on Ebay and Froogle (latter Google
Shopping).

One day I got into a dispute about a small amount that broke the law and the customery & reasonable rules in existence.
I got on the Google chat channel with someone that claimed to be a laddy with a very soothing name that sounded like
Apple Pie.
She (that what the claim was) did not whant to divulge her location but from the grammar and syntax was from the Indian
subcontinent.   After she said Yes, OF Course, and Obviously one to many times I realised that she had no idea what the
hell I was talking about (like the old chinesse joke where they answer yes when you ask for directions) and decided to
end my monologue with a request:  electronically sign the chat and send it to my email as an attachment.  I drew a blank
and she said that she does not know what I was talking about.  I lied that if she does not keep her agreement in the
chat I can track her by fingerprints (again she had no idea).

Just as a precaution I closed the credit card account without paying the disputed (it was no dispute because she agreed
that I was correct...lol) amount.

I got a brand new credit card a week later from another lender.  The first statement comes and to my surprise the Google
charge was divided in 3 separate charges.  It was the only charge because I did not use that card yet (had a bunch of
them at the time).

I call the New Credit Card company and I got lucky with a smart dude in the fraud department.  He explained to me that
Google purchases credit card numbers from Visa/MC and whatever they do they are imune from prosecution with a very few
exception but I can call the FBI wirefraud division and he will be a witness if neccessary.  I said what is the
difference between a hacker that purchases the numbers on the DarkWeb and charges them and Google.  He corrected me to
the term DarkWeb as being Encrypted Networks and said the difference is the term "tech giant" which the average hacker
is not.  I ended up canceling all my credit cards, cell phone, email etc...

Today is still the same with the exception that the rules will apply to Canada and Mexico after they joined the New
Nafta.
