Hint: The answer is yes.

I especially like the “Verified Secure” text and logo – coupled with a non-secure http address (you do check for the lock and https: in the title bar, right?)

    Update: it looks like this is humorous on a different level.
    It is actually a tongue-in-cheek “educational” site. It doesn’t actually steal your credit card, but it certainly *could* have.

    Paul bought ismycreditcardstolen.com a couple days ago. AJ came up with the idea a while back, but Paul’s purchase of the domain drove me to throw together a site. The goal was to educate gullible people about phishing while amusing the technically-inclined.

    With some help from friends (Ben Lowery and Bjorn Tipling), I cleaned up the styling and made sure that the credit card details were never sent across the wire.

    I submitted the link to Hacker News, where it was rather well-received. Everyone got the joke. Some even offered suggestions to improve the text of the warning message.
