Beware The Razored Fake Payment Card

A new type of payment card forger is making the rounds, this time armed with a razor blade and very little money.

After the thief has been able to guess at random numbers and find a viable payment card, the culprit razors off the last few digits from a real payment card and KrazyGlues the guessed at numbers onto the card. He/she then scratches the magstripe to force the cashier to manually enter in the digits, according to this nicely-done story from the Oregonian newspaper.
