    Hi! I want to buy some auto parts, from Summit Racing Equipment and they ask to me that: "We do require a complete copy front and back for the Master Card."(with card number)! With that card, I already buy auto parts, from LMC Truck, but, they don't ask to me that! They (LMC Truck), receipt the payment and, I receipt the auto parts. Why the Summit Racing Equipment ask me for card copy? This is normal? Is usual, for on-line payments? What do you know about that? You do this before?:confused:

    i always use my credit card with Summit, and just enter the number. are you shipping them to Romania? that probably has alot to do with it.

    I ordered wheels from summit in April or May of this year and used a master card and they did not require any thing but the card number and the three digit number on back of the card

    Yes, I shipping to Romania, same from LMC, but they don't ask that! If I send a copy, from the card, with complete number, can be a risk? The card was accepted by the payment sistem from Summit, but the request, they asked by e-mail, on privat. I don't know what to do.

    If your worried about mailing the #'s, is there a way you could send a money order or electronic transfer? Call sumitt and talk to a rep. Maybe western union? not sure if you have them there or not.

    yeah Id be a little cautious about that. I use my card all the time too and have only had to enter my number but then again Im not in Romania so that may be a little different I would do like what was mentioned and call and talk to a rep.

    Two words "Bucuresti - Romania" (fraud potential) and I would call Summitt and verify request via voice. IP address can be spoofed I don't know how things are now but remember "everyone is guaranteed three arshems of earth and nine grams of lead"

    When in doubt always talk to a person better safe than sorry.

    Some businesses do require proof of card ownership for potentially fradulent orders ... nothing personal, but overseas orders, and particularly those from the Far East and the eastern European republics such as yours are suspect. :crazy:

    Obviously emailing them isn't secure; you should be able to FAX them a copy of the card or whatever they want.

    It is for your protection, though it's a pain; this way they make sure someone hasn't stolen your card and is just using the number.

    Make sense?

    You already sent them the #'s. What is the difference?

    Некоторые из моих друзей как раз тупоумны здесь. Вызовите Summitt моим другом и спросите.

    Some of my friends exactly are slow here. Because Summitt may need to see you have what you say.

    They need proof of ownership of the card.

    My question was what was the difference, or problem, with sending them a copy when the numbers, both front and back, were already in their system.

    They want a photocopy of the card -- the same card, so they can read the numbers -- so that they know you have the physical card in your possession, and haven't just stolen the numbers off a receipt somewhere.

    Or am I missing something? Anyway, it's not unheard of, particularly for overseas or suspect orders.

    I think that we are saying the same thing. Sending a copy of the card is no big deal IMO.

    :thinking: I don't know russian... I am romanian! We don't use kirilic alphabet, we use latin alphabet! Romanian are latin people, like italien, french, spanish; our language is very close to italian! So, I don't understand, what you wrote...:dunno: ;)

    Can be! But, "fraud potential" can associate to everyone... even with USA. Why the LMC Truck don't do the same?! I buy from them, two times, using same card! And it was OK! This card is not a credit card, is a debit card, so, no money - no buy! And, to on-line shopings, pay money first... like to the whores!!! In that case, who take the big risk; customer, or seller?
