I'll be very careful and continue not owning a PS3.

nothing was stolen, nothing went missing, they were just copied. its cool.

How do you know nothing was stolen, they could already be making charges to CCs.

Pit, you may want to re-read his text. Twas a joke.

I got it, he was making fun of one of the arguments of downloading music, but it's a bad analogy.

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] April 27 2011 4:49 PM EDT

feel better knowing that I am someone affected by this. maybe not my CC but my personal info.

Thank god I dont believe in CCs because a wise old man once said to me "if you do not have the cash to buy now, you cannot afford it"

You could have listed a debit card...

QBPit Spawn [Abyssal Specters] April 27 2011 5:11 PM EDT

I do not feel better knowing that as I wasn't offended in the first place. I do hope you come out of it ok though. Your credit rating can be ruined without credit cards...

lol I know, blockbuster, rogers, some types of power companies and I cant list the rest(too many) but alot report your negligence on paying minor bills, I used to do collections ^_^ I hated the job, but learned alot. Even checking your score lowers it.

Even checking your score lowers it

Nope. Checking your score has no impact, so long as you do it yourself (through a source like www.annualcreditreport.com). It only counts against you have a lender pull it, which counts as a hard inquiry.
