Infographic – Check if a Credit Card is Valid or Invalid/Fake
We stumbled upon an interesting infographic and couldn’t stop us from sharing it with our readers. Credit Card or CC is an essential and prominent financial product these days, usually owned by a majority of users to buy goods and services. If you’re a Credit Card or Debit Card holder, then you must have noticed the 16-digit numeric code inscribed on the card. But as most of you might wonder, those 16 numbers aren’t given randomly but serves an important purpose. According to an amazing algorithm by Mint.com, one can simply crack the credit card code and determine if the card number is invalid or fake. Sounds weird? Just try it on your CC and make sure to do the math right!
How to Validate a Credit Card with your Mind –
