Many a times on the internet, we have stumbled across many websites which ask you to enter your credit card information either to register on the website or for a free trial, etc. However, there is a reason why you should be paranoid – the credit card number that you provide may be illegally used by some illegitimate websites to cheat you out of your money. Even if that doesn’t happen, the a weakly protected website carrying your credit card data may be hacked by hackers.
In such cases, you need to use a fake credit card number, which is valid enough, so that the particular website accepts your registration, and also you do not get cheated out of your money.
A simple Google search reveals thousands of online as well as offline credit card number generators – most of which do not work and some of which may also be virus infected.
Get Credit Card Numbers is one of the most reliable sites in that case, already displaying 5 randomly generated credit card numbers of 4 different companies (5 x 4 = 20) on the home page itself. The website also gives you the option to generate as many as 9999 numbers at a time, in either a JSON, XML or CSV format.
Fake Name Generator is yet another service, but it also offers a fake name, address, real pincode, a date of birth, a phone number, and credit card details with valid credit card numbers but fake expiration and CVV details. This is really useful if you want details more than the credit card number, all fake of course.
All the above mentioned generators work based on the Luhn Algorithm, also popularly known as MOD10 algorithm, which is used by many websites to validate credit card numbers. However, the credit card numbers given cannot be used for online shopping as they assuredly do not work, and are all fake, though valid.
