    Hey guys,

    Love, love, love BHW. This is MY kind of place.

    Working on scraping data from a website that requires a credit card for account creation. I used to be able to just go to CVS and get a prepaid credit card or use the Privacy credit card and it worked like a charm. Today, however, they've updated it and I get this error: "Sorry, prepaid cards are not allowed."

    Not sure how exactly they're detecting that with the Privacy card, but okay.

    My Q: is there a way around this? I basically need a credit card, any at all.. that is listed as NOT prepaid. They only accept cards. Any thoughts on products you know or ways to get around this? Obviously, remaining anonymous is key.

    Thanks so much!
