It turns out, that, as insane though it may be, there are people out there who take pictures of their credit/debit cards, and post them.

Really. People take pictures of the brand-new credit card they have, and show it to all their friends via Facebook. "Hey! Look what I've got!"

There is a new Twitter account set up to display all these pictures, and apparently is actually meant to tell people just how stupid they are.

There are some other stupid things people do that can lead to credit destruction and/or robbery.

Really. People post pictures of their credit and debit cards. I wonder what the bank officers said when they found out.
