The Data Protection watchdog are warning that consumers credit card details could be at risk of fraudulent use as Data Protection rules may be being broken. Retail companies are recording telephone calls for 'training and quality purposes' more and more which may contain credit card and bank details that are not being dealt with with the proper precautions. It is not just over the telephone that you need to be careful it is with details given online also.
Credit card details are stolen to be used to create false identities to enable counterfeit transactions. It is up to the organisation to keep your information safe and to take their Data Protection obligations seriously. The Information Commissioner has the power to impose financial penalties even criminal liability which could lead to the imprisonment for directors. However it is also prudent to be wary of who you are dealing with and what information they are asking for.
