AMAZON.GONE Tis the Season: FAX TO THE FUTURE

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
To SEAINT NICK:

Just a heads up friendly reminder that more goes on on the Internet than just your friendly SEAINT NICK.Listserv!

While travelling to San Francisco, I was unable to use my credit card.  It was "denied".  I didn't discover until I got home that it was denied because it was "over the limit".  Although my card has never been out of my possession, 9 unauthorized charges posted to my account:  Amazon.com; Buy.com; Swiftgiftcard.com.  I don't know what happened at this point, but you might want to consider FAXing your credit card number, rather than submitting it via email, regardless of how "secure" the site claims to be.  About $3,000 went bye-bye in two weeks at the stroke of a keyboard, and I was none the wiser until the card was denied.

According to Amazon.com:

Please fax (or have your issuing bank fax) to us at (206) 266-6300 the
following information:

     * complete credit card number
     * date of charge
     * amount of charge
     * name and extension of contact person at your issuing bank
       (use the toll-free number on your credit card to obtain this)
     * your name, email address, and fax number (or phone number)

We ask that this information be faxed to us simply because email is
not as secure a method of transmitting your credit card number.

All I want for Christmas is my "Available Credit"!

PS:  I know it wasn't anybody from the Listserv, because no "Code Expert Opinion" CD ROMs were purchased!
