email received from Bank of America, on them discontinuing ShopSafe online disposable one time (or recurring) time limited credit card numbers. I use them a lot especially on all chinese type or unknown websites without much fear. Now will need to rely on changing card numbers if something goes wrong or cards compromised.

also was very useful when wanting to give to trial subscriptions etc to ensure they do not keep charging. So I do not believe their below email reason on why they are discontinuing
