    takes time to fix - do you know any working people burdened with an excess of time? Even if this imaginary person with time on their hands exists, would they like to spend it on the phone with the credit card company? If takes know how - most people are far less tech-savvy than your average Kossack, much less than a hacker. Some of the victims of this thievery are retirees, who are even less likely to know how to deal with this. It is a needless hassle & most people's lives have more than enough of that.

    Also, it takes time to fix. Refunds are not immediate. In this economy, how many people are living right up at their credit limit? And now they have to wait for the corporate bureaucracy to give back what these jerks stole.

    Not the way to get the common person on your side.
