Mitch,
Did she call you or you call her and why did she need your credit card #.
Something smells in Denmark.
I would contact my bank and get a new credit card as this has a smell
of dishonesty!
THW
I don't think she was from Denmark.

It's OK my computer has started working again OK. I think the cat had disturbed one of the cables at the back. I just checked them and one was loose. So all is well again. I'm sure I have no need to worry about he lady on the phone. She really did sound very nice.

Find a good bank, transfer funds to them and get a new card issued!
Then have a separate card with small amount in it for buying stuff on e-bay or whatever.
I never give my credit card over the phone with my major account card.

The most they can steal or hack is a couple hundred dollars MAX!
THW

Forgot to tell you to close that account ASAP!

Don't you have to pay for support after a period of time, I'm pretty sure OEM you have to pay for support.
