Actually you are not allowed to save credit card numbers unless you
are a certified payment provider (which implies major security
Even a certified payment provider is not allowed to store cvc codes,
and without the codes the credit card numbers are useless. (amazon of
course is an exception to this rule...)
However, if you saving cc-numbers or bank accounts or any other
payment related data in your database unencrypted you belong in jail
But please feel free to tell us that you are doing one of the above,
