My mom can't stop buying anti-virus software.

Is there such a thing as a credit card that can only be used in person? My mom needs that, because she'll give it to any website that tells her to.

My mother has very poor memory and has purchased over 20 copies of AVG in the past three months because every time a website tells her that her antivirus software is expiring, she'll believe it.
* Installing malware blockers, but somehow she keeps running into these pseudo-scams.
* Putting a note on her computer saying "Do not put your credit card # into the computer!!!" but she took it down.
Right now I've cancelled all her cards, but that's going to be inconvenient when she wants to go to the store or restaurants.
Is there such a thing as a "card present only" credit card?
