    My sister in-law had one of these and it wasn't until she asked her dad to pass her her handbag that the alarm bells rang for her dad.

    I think they tend to phone you when your gonna be busy like around dinner time etc....
    so that you havn't got too much time to think about what your doing.

    When she questioned why they need her security number they hung up on her!!

    Cheers

    To stop alot of this going on they should stop companies from sending out goods to addresses other than the card holder. Some companies do it and sometimes it's a pain if you're lodging temporarily somewhere, but it would make things alot safer.

    The same guy posted this scam today too! Don't know where he's getting his info from, but can't hurt to hear about them - knowledge is power after all! :lol:
