Guy Gets Credit Card After Submitting a Torn-Up Application

I think this illustrates the fact there are serious, serious problems in the whole credit industry.

Via Boing Boing.

Rob Cockerham of says:

"I wasn't sure if just tearing a Credit Card application into tiny bits was good enough to prevent dumpster-diving theft, so I did a test.

"I tore one up, then taped it back together again, filled it out with a DIFFERENT address and CELL number.

"Sure enough, in four weeks I was rewarded with a shiny new card with a $5,000 limit.

"Now I guess I'll go buy a shredder with this card."
