What is this and why do I have to do
Due to the amount of credit card fraud over the
internet, banks will soon REQUIRE this information to process credit
card orders online - you can expect to see it used everywhere in the
very near future; we just want to get a head start on it. Your benefit
is that it prevents any fraudulent charges using your credit card, i.e.
no one can pick up an old receipt of yours and use that info to fraudulently
use your credit card. Thanks for your cooperation.
Note: The digits are printed on your card, rather then stamped in the plastic like the digits in your credit card number.
