thanks very nuch for the info , Walt. So it’s not really ECX being a pain in the butt , but VISA, Now why the heck couldn’t they put it like that? they gave me a load of daft spiel about this being same thing you get asked at any RL store. How old do they think I am? I am 58, never got asked for photo ID at any kind of store, anywhere, ever. chuckle . I’d already told 'em that, too. So I still feel miffed that they treat me like an idiot. Or maybe they are idiots themselves? :S I dunno.
May I quote you at need? I can see people taking an increasing interst in this,
I wonder what made this transaction seem high risk? It wasn’t in any way out-of-the ordinary for me.
I also wonder why they couldn’t just confirm that the billing address is the same as the shipping address?
Oh! and hang on…what the heck use is a photo, on the internet, where you can’t see the customer’s face?
Right now , anyway I’m just very very glad indeed that they picked on thae ECX transaction, because the very next day, I ordered flowers for a friend who was critically ill in Canada. That transaction went though in no time flat. The flowers were deliverered , brought a smile to my friend’s face, I’m told. And two days later the friend died. The thought that it could have been that transaction they picked on instead is chilling.
