I wonder now if it could have been to do with a fine for speeding.
Anyway the caller did not give any details of the offence. Fraudsters ring up with any excuse to try and extract card details and PINs from innocent members of the public.
Some such crooks are clever psychologists and know how to touch a raw nerve as clearly has happened here.
Cards range from debit cards (usually of the prepaid, reloadable variety) to actual credit cards (almost always linked to their parents’ bank accounts).And that’s causing a fierce debate among parents about what kind of values this signals to kids.So when it came time to treat herself to a pair of Tory Burch flats — at a cool 0 — all she did was swipe her Visa. “The freedom is nice — and also the responsibility.I first got the card in fourth grade and I’m getting better and better at responsibility.” Her mom, Cherie, who founded an online organic health company, loads 0 — a combination of her daughter’s money and her own — onto Julia’s card each month (held under an account in Mom’s name).Usefull for testing e-commerce sites (because they should get past any pre-validation you do, and be declined at the card processor or bank stage).
In testing situations any expiry date within the next 3 years should work Feedback forces me to clarify this: These are NOT valid credit card numbers. They are random numbers that happen to conform to the MOD 10 algorithm.As you can see these would be very hard to calculate without the bank’s keys.A very good article about the credit card number format can be found here: Anatomy of Credit Card Numbers As you can see below I get a lot of feedback about this page.“I know everything that’s going on with her spending,” Cherie says. While credit card companies don’t keep track of all the minors who are the cards’ secondary users, they still court very young consumers. I may have marginally exceeded the speed limit but not near a speed camera and anyway I thought if this did happen one would receive something in a brown envelope.Never give anyone who calls you in such a way any bank or PIN details or indeed any personal information.
