 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.

 Any suggestions?


edit: I should add that many services need me to enter in a lot of personal info which of course again is another risk

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

You'ld probably have luck using the #bitcoin-otc marketplace to find a reputable "buyer of bitcoins" who would provide payment to you by making the purchase on your behalf where shipment is made to your address.

 - http://www.bitcoin-otc.com
 - http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#bitcoin-otc-foyer (web-based IRC)

You can determine if the trading partner has a trust rating in the #bitcoin-otc Web of Trust (WoT) here:
