Is there any way to deduce somebody's location through their credit card number?

    I was wondering if there are ways to tell where someone is from their credit card number alone. Kind of like how you can tell the general location of somebody through their IP address. Any answer is greatly appreciated

    Not the person's location, but location of the bank that issued the card.
    AntiFraud service does it.

    Thanks! that info was totally helpful. Is there like some known method for this or are antifraud guys the only ones privy to such methods?
