There are any number of ways someone can get your credit card number. It can be skimmed, meaning it's passed through a device that reads and traps the magnetic data; that can happen at resturants, stores and even ATM machines. You can be conned into a phishing scam where you inwittingly give the number to someone who seems official (PayPal and eBay scams are very popular now, but there's no end to the variety). You online account data can be hacked. Someone can look over your shoulder and either memorize or write it down. There are some ecxellent websites pertaining to fraud and identity theft. Check out The internet Fraud Complaint Center at www.ifccfbi.gov Your attorney general should also have some good information. Also look at www.idtheftcenter.org

The number on your credit card. For instance, open your wallet or billfold, remove the credit card, and read the sixteen digit number on the face of the card. On occasion you will also need the three digit security code on the back on the card as well.

Most credit cards I know of have a 16-digit number. It will often be divided into groups of 4 on the card, but this is mostly for readability. I hope this question isn't an attempt to get someone to provide you with a valid credit card number.

No, The credit card number is the long string of numbers embossed on the card. The account number is not shown on the credit card - it will be on your statements.

No, you can not give credit that you have to someone else. You can loan someone money or your credit card, but you are still responsible for paying the credit card company back.

They could use it if they have your PIN number.

This question makes no sense. The credit card number is printed on the card in raised numbers across the front.

Yes I believe you can report credit card fraud if you know someone who has someone elses credit card, if let's say one of your friends or family member got there credit card stolen and you also know the person who stole the credit card you can report a credit card fraud or you can just let your friend or family member report fraud on there credit card, I hope this helps :).

The CVV (Card Verification Value) is a three digit code on the back of the credit card, which is calculated using a certain formula, using the credit card number. It is an added security measure in case an unauthorised person is able to copy down your credit card number, and is also an easy way to determine most 'fake' numbers.
