Skeptisk

Jeg har bestilt et objektiv fra statene. Alt ser bra ut, helt til jeg får følgende epost:

Er dette normalt når man handler varer USA? Jeg har handlet masse fra England, USA og til og med Tyskland, men har aldri blitt bedt om å oppgi denne informasjonen. Jeg har jo allerede gitt fra meg kredittkortnummeret og utløpdsdatoen. Det holder i praksis i massevis til å misbruke kortet mitt. Med informasjonen de ber om i tillegg kan de jo ta over identiteten min også. Er det lov å være skeptisk?

Jeg har sendt en epost tilbake med hva jeg mener om dette:

Hello Abe, I’m trying to understand why this is necessary. I have never, not once, in all the years I’ve been shopping online been asked to give this information. Nor can I understand why you would need it. I have already included the details needed to process my VISA card, as well as my billing address. Because of an error in your order form, I had to set US as my billing address to get the correct shipping charge. This is explained in the order. I am highly suspicious about this. I use a credit card when I shop online to have greater control in the case of abuse. With the information you are asking, I can see nothing stopping you from abusing my credit card. If you cannot complete the transaction without this information, I am considering contacting VISA to reject this transaction and find another vendor. regards, xxx

Forhåpentligvis har de enten et veldig fornuftig svar på hvorfor de trenger det (jeg vet jo egentlig svaret), eller de kansellerer transaksjonen, eller det lar transaksjonen gå gjennom uten mer tull. Jeg venter i spenning.
