Subject: UKNM: Credit card fraud

Has anyone come across cases of credit card fraud in this country or abroad,
involving intercepted secure transactions where the encryption has been
subsequently cracked? We would like to put a statement to the effect that this
is either very rare or non-existent, on our web site to allay people's fears as
we percieve a lingering and unreasonable distrust of e-commerce out there. Our
IT manager sensibly advised that if people were interested in credit card
fraud, they would find it a damn site easier to get a job as a waiter, but I'm
not sure that our audience would find this altogether comforting.
