Crooks Using Pizza App To Verify Stolen Card Numbers

It takes a crook to come up with a scam like this. Honestly, would you have thought of using a pizza app to check stolen credit card numbers?

In short, thieves working through lists of stolen credit card numbers were using a smartphone app that orders pizza to see which numbers still worked. When they found a number to be valid, authorities said, the thieves used it to order bigger-ticket items online آ— while people in pockets of Brownsville and East New York in Brooklyn ate the pizzas.
