Well, I received a call from Justin at DataPro, whom was more concerned that
I was contacting him in my official capacity from ABSA than the actual issue
at hand.

He very quickly turned around and blamed their client for submitting the
information, which should  never have been setup in that way, but neglected
to make mention of the fact that their own website had been hacked.

Oh well, this is why credit card fraud is and will remain to be such an
issue in this country.
