I need to pay for something online and the merchant only accepts credit cards but I don't have a secure and reliable connection available to me. This is a perfect time to use a virtual credit card.
Unfortunately it seems all the bitcoin funded VCCs are not available right now.
I don't need anonymity so I thought I'd try buying one with Paypal and then delete the card info but cliffscard.com is $40 for only $25 of credit, it's very expensive.
edit: I should add that many services need me to enter in a lot of personal info which of course again is another risk
