When you click the “Check if my credit card is stolen button” does it say “It is now!”?
Sounds like you should find out.
Let us know how that goes, will you?
Nope. It said “MUHAHAHAHA SUCKA”. And now I have to cancel that card…
I tried with fake info. It doesn’t submit anything.
“The purpose of this site is to educate users about the dangers of phishing. [...]”
(From http://ismycreditcardstolen.com/about.html The message they give when you actually submit “your info” is also good.)
Looks like they’re *trying* to teach people about how the web works!
The element only contains the button so none of the other details get posted (although I didn’t check for malicious scripts).
It turns out that 1/100 visits to that site send the real form that steals your credit card, but it logs your IP so that on subsequent visits, when you might go back to check, it shows the “good citizen” form. Good luck catching them.
