Credit card numbers are comprised of 16-digits (Visa, Master and Discover), and 15-digits for American Express (AMX). Others may have 14-digits (Diners Club) or 12 to 19-digits for Maestro cards. The credit card numbers are divided into Issuer Identification Number (IIN) and Account Identification Number (AIN).
