Subject: Pennsic Credit Card Problems?

Hi, Devra.  I'm writing because you are pretty much the only Pennsic
merchant that I know to be able to contact - and one where I used my 
card at Pennsic.  Have any of the merchants heard anything about credit
card numbers being stolen off unsecured lines at Pennsic?  I discovered
today that my credit card number was used five times while I was at 
(at BP stations and ToysRUs, all listed as being in Florida), and the
person(s) supposedly had the card present at the time of transaction,
according to the credit card company.  This was impossible because my 
was always with me and I still have it.  I asked on the Midrealm's 
if anyone else has had problems with their number being "stolen" while 
Pennsic.  One person mentioned "wardrivers" who apparently can suck out 
numbers from unsecured lines, and I'm assuming that what the merchants 
at Pennsic are unsecured lines.  The credit card company will be 
sending me
a copy of all the transactions so I can tell them which ones I dispute, 
they have cancelled my old card and are issuing a new one.  Is there a
merchant e-list where people can be asked if they've heard of any 
like this?  Have you heard anything?
