ExxonMobile glitch sends man 2,000 credit cards

coondoggie writes "Now this is what we call a legendary computer glitch: Manhattan accountant Frank Van Buren received 2,00 ExxonMobile gas cards then the energy giant refused to take them back when confronted with the problem. The issue started after Van Buren called Exxon Mobile to replace his two existing cards. What he got were two separate deliveries of 1,000 cards each. Published reports indicate the cards were active already as well, sans the usual sticker that provides a number for customers to call to activate. Talk about an identity thief's delight. http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/17876"
