I agree, but I have a safeguard in place, I have a small secondary account that I use exclusively for online transactions, and only keep a small balance in it. That way that don't have access to my primary account.

During checkout, you ask for my CVV number; what is that?


The CVV number is the three digit code that is printed on your signature strip following your credit card number. We ask for it as a security feature. It helps us ensure that the person placing an order is the actual credit card holder.
Out of curiosity, why do you say is this dodgy? I have NEVER bought anything on my card that didn't ask for the CVV number. It is a standard way of checking that you are in fact the card holder.

When someone has the CVV they can charge what ever they want to your account until the CC limit cuts it off.
Also they can empty a debit account.
If that is their goal.

It is just like they have your debit card and the PIN # and can go to the local ATM.

So if it is someone you don't know doing as seekermeister did with limited funds is one way to limit exposure.

I do not think that having the CVV would change anything about whether they could wrongly charge the account, they could do that whether they had the CVV or not.

Don't know whether you have this over there, but here in the UK, when you buy something online on your card, you get taken to a "Verified by Visa" or an equivalent for MasterCard site, completely independant of the website you are buying from, (forget what it's called), where you input secure details held by whoever your card issuer is. At that point, Verified by Visa, always ask me for the CVV to confirm that it is my card.

Did you get that with this site? (IF you have it over there)

I rarely use the debit card, so I really do not know for certain, but when I have used it, I have not been taken to any additional website for verification. PayPal does something like this, but it seems that the method used varies, depending on who you are dealing with at the time.

Personally if you're feeling that uncomfortable about the transaction I would cancel it. Your intuition is saying something. I promise I know how it is when you REALLY want something.... but sometimes those are the things that take our guard down.... and we say "I knew it"


I wish you luck either way.

Newegg and Amazon use that. So do other sights but not all.
The ones that don't use Visa Verify you are giving it to the company you order from.


The websites that use Visa Verify have always posted they use it.

The ones that didn't list they used Visa Verify on the site that I have tried didn't use VVerify at checkout and wanted the CVV number anyway.
I ended up using Paypal or didn't buy from them.

What do all these URLS have in common?

*NB the prices

TVDVDMania*::*Western*::*Death Valley Days DVD Collection

(whois: godaddy hosted)

Power DVD Classics - All your favorite TV series - www.powerdvdclassics.com

(whois: protected)

Different layout, but notice the description:

Death Valley Days DVD Collection



It's not uncommon for a company to trade under a few different names (a bit shady), but the price difference is certainly interesting between the top two.

Best of luck with this
