Sounds like it's time to start paying with a disposable credit card or...if they exist, a pre paid card of some sort.

i think there's the possibility the customer used the same password as one of her email addresses that she uses to login to skipthedishes

I'm guessing it's the password. I had my Dominos account compromised once. I struggled with calling it hacked, because I use decent passwords for sensitive things, and a more common password for things I consider benign. With Dominos we always pay cash, no stored credit card, so I was using one of my generic passwords (ie something I used on multiple sites). I think the password got hacked on another site, then someone used it on Dominos to use my free rewards pizzas. I never even thought about the rewards. I immediately changed my password. I contacted Dominos and they gave me my points back (with a stern warning to change my password).

I don't feel like Dominos was hacked. It was poor password management on my behalf.
