I'M NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING, I JUST THINKING SONY SHOULD ADD A FEATURE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO REMOVE CREDIT CARD DETAILS WITHOUT A PASSWORD.
I've purchased an item on the PlayStation Store, via Credit Card. I didn't know if my details would be saved on the account, but I did it anyways. I successfully received my item that I purchased, although my Credit Card information was still on the PlayStation store. Well, I thought, there MUST be a way to remove it. So I finally found a tutorial in the Knowledge base, and I figured out where to go. But, the problem is, I cannot get the credit card information off my account due to the fact I have lost my password.
Is that really a smart move for Sony? Requiring a password to remove Credit Card information. That really isn't a secure way to have credit card details stored. With, or without a password, someone should be able to REMOVE Credit Card information from their account in-case they forgot their password. I have contacted PlayStation support several times, with no luck.
3. USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
So, if someone gets a hold of my account, while the Credit Card information is on there - They have the option to add unlimited fundings to my account. Sony would be held responsible, correct? - Due to the fact they have not protected my information correctly, and DID NOT allow me to remove my existing credit card details from my account.

True, but if someone comes into your house and steals your PS3, they won't have access to your credit card info. More people get their PS3s stolen than those who get hacked.

No, that would be your fault. It would fall under the "unintentional" part.
"we are not responsible for any personal information that you publicly disclose (intentionally or unintentionally)"
That being said, if your console is stolen, I believe the Credit Card information is shown sometinhg like XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-####. Only the last 4 numbers will be shown, if I remember correctly. And there is also a limit to how much you can spend a month I believe, somewhere around $500 per month or so...don't quote me on that.
And if you forgot your password, just hit the "Forgot Password" button.

Did you try contacting sony once your lost access to the account? Did sony deny you the request?
Or did you ignore the fact your credit card information was stored somewhere without you being able to access it and someone hacked itno it and stole it.
