Oh, and corperations have this thing called a "bottom line." It means that they only care that money is coming in and not flowing out. It isn't their concern where it's coming from as long it adds up to a profit for them.

With that in mind, I don't believe that this so-called security check is really in the customers' interest. I think they want to make sure it is coming from an active account and they can continue to charge from it at their leisure. Banks do it all the time (ie. fees associated with direct deposits). And, in some cases, you can set up your bills to automatically deduct from the active account.

Who is to say PWE isn't attempting this? And why should they CARE where the money is coming from? They aren't the one who stole it. Customers are the real criminals, not the corperations.
