“Cyber-criminals test cards to make sure they are active, so they are able to resell them to other cyber-criminals for a higher price. Once sold, it’s a race against the clock to commit fraud using the valid stolen credit card… before another cyber-criminal does, or before the issuing bank deactivates the card. “
