It seems like once a month I go to the mail only to find yet another letter explaining how some company's computers were hacked into and my credit card information has been compromised.  I deserve to be protected and so do you.

Again last week, another letter in the mail saying that my credit card information was part of a company wide hack.  And that they were doing everything possible to protect me, even giving me a year of some sort of protection that I really don't understand.

So let me get this straight, my bank, or in my case credit union, AND credit card company do everything possible to protect me.  Going so far as to shut down my credit card if it looks like a suspicious charge has been placed on it, but if I buy toilet paper at Target, someone in China may steal my information to buy a TV.  That is unacceptable.

If these companies can claim they are protecting me AFTER a hack, why can't they use that same technology to protect me before it happens.  Why?  Is it because they don't want to spend the money on protection?

I believe every time credit card information gets stolen because I used it to buy something, that company (business) should compensate the credit card holder.  A letter in the mail is not good enough.
