    It is a real credit card number that is generally generated by an authorized company (PayPal, for example) so that you can use a credit card online that isn't directly related to your own personal financial information. Often times these virtual credit cards will be created so that they can only be used a single time for a pre-established amount of money. Their initial purpose was to help fight fraud. That considered, it's rather ironic how they are used now.

    As with all credit cards, it depends on how you use them.

    Alright, here is an example.

    LEGAL
    apekillape uses a virtual credit card created with his PayPal account to buy a pizza through CampusFood.com because he doesn't have a real credit card because he sucks at life.

    ILLEGAL
    Killermule uses a virtual credit card of unknown origin to order $1,500 worth of porn because he doesn't want to pay for it.

    I kid because I love. Also, it was the most recent example I could think of of someone using a VCC for legitimate reasons.

    You can order vcc's via egold from websites like card444.com, card111.com and many others..But personally i haven't used these egold funding vcc's..I would be a lot simpler if you have a real credit card with which you can buy vcc's. entropay.com, wwwcard.com etc offers this.
