And the idea that not having the security code is proof of them not having the info is also kind of silly. Most are 3 or 4 digits long and could be figured out in very little time via brute force by anyone with access to a CC payment service. Not to mention there are sites that don't ask for the security code, should make anyone who stored their real CC# with PSN get a new card from their CC company.
Probably not. A single incorrect CVV entry will typically contact the card owner and flag the card as potentially stolen.

I have been sent numerous emails within 5 minutes of entering the wrong CVV code once. The emails all said FRAUD ALERT. It scared me until I realized what I did.

Storing the CVV codes on the database is a very stupid thing, however.
