Not too bad a plan, except for the part where you buy it from
someone else who's already seen what yours says, and then most
people will use it as directed on the site - meaning they use
a method that anybody who steals their wallet can discover by
looking up the URL politely printed on the card.


I know you say "for ordinary users" - but, seriously?  They
don't even fill out their own?
