20. Thanks for all the due respect.
Edited on Sat Jun-02-07 01:32 PM by ArtieBoy
They were asking for that info for "account verficiation," meaning they need you to repeat that information back to them, information only you should know, to ensure interlopers aren't calling in to get your sensitive information. Do you want any dickhead on your e-mail list to be able to call in and give your name and e-mail address and get your credit information? Sounds like it.

Interestingly I just went to their site and there's no way to use their service without giving your SSN and credit card number. So you gave it to them and don't remember it. Look at the site yourself. That's all there is to it.

Anything else I can help you with? No? Thanks for calling (CLICK)!
