    Credit card question

    Hello,

    I would like to know if a devious user knows only the credit card number, expiration date, and credit card's type, but he doesn't know the credit card's owner's name, can he still do some damage?

    If no damage, then in the form, I should not ask the user to enter name and credit card info in the same form.

    Thanks in advance,
    John

    I don't know about "damage" but it's a very bad sign when your user doesn't know the name for the credit card.

    Thanks, Anarchos.
    I think to make it secure, I will ask the user to enter his/her name in a separate form and then validate the name, and I shouldn't rely only in the username and password.

    I don't know if other e-commerce software do this or other way. Anyone knows?
    John
