Yes, it would make people think twice before giving out their number.  But
in a lot of cases, the serials that are being traded around the net are not
actual "authentic" serials.  They are generated.  So unless the program is
tied in with a completely secure 24-hour database of credit card numbers, it
really doesn't do that much for protection.

It all comes down to the Key.  Crack the key and you've got it.  Whether you
use their Credit Card number, Telephone Number, Social Security Number or
any other type of number...it doesn't make a difference.  Someone will crack
it.
