    Fax us a copy of your Visa bill...

    Anyone ever have a store ask that?

    A shop asked me for a copy of my CC bill to verify my mailing address. It's a major internet retailer. The purchase was approved by Visa, but the store says they are concerned about CC security.

    Is that legal? No freakin' way I'd do that. Call the manager and chew on his ear for awhile.

    I'd start shopping at a different on-line retailer.

    You can just fax the front part with the visa logo and your mailing address.

    However, there is more than enough stores out there where you can take your business. I would suggest that.

    The correct response to that request is, "Pound sand."

    It's in the UK, I'm waiting for them to open so I can phone the manager.
    I actually tried faxing them with most of my details blanked out, but they turn their fax off when the office closes. That seemed odd.
    And I don't know why they are so concerned with security. Visa approved the sale. If it was fraudulent, wouldn't Visa be out the money?

    UK? I've bought from Wiggle, PBK, and Ribble. They've never asked for a fax.

    I wouldn't do that. Trust-worthy e-purchase shops in the UK (e.g., PBK) don't ask you to do that. I would be very inquisitive and careful.

    Was it Chain Reaction Cycle? I have heard others complain in the past about them asking for a faxed copy of the credit card bill for verification.
