Autodoc Verification

Apologies if there's a better place for this:

Ordered two new shocks for the Civic on the weekend, this morning I get an email from what looks to be them, asking me to email back a photo of the credit card used (first 12 numbers censored) and photo ID of the cardholder (me) and the recipient (Fathers name/work address). Also, email came from a buycarparts.co.uk email address, guessing the company has a lot of different names..

Anyone had this from them before? I can see why they might do it (different delivery address to cardholder), just seems like a bit of an old fashioned way of doing it.

Cheers!

Thanks for the info guys.

Asked them on why they need the info, need to call them tomorrow now apparently. As dodgy as their emails seem it does appear to be legit.

Definitely going down the paypal route next time..

Fully agree.

No one should need a photo of a CC. If they won't take the order then let them cancel and order again using Paypal.

Spoke to them just a moment ago over the phone, seemed like they were paranoid about sending the stuff to a different address to what the card was registered to.
Basically asked to confirm the last 4 digits of the card, the delivery address details including the name of the person who would be receiving it, who the person was in relation to me...

Like, really?! Quick internet search suggests I'm not the only one having this and they are genuine, but still. Crap way of doing it.

Hopefully they won't need to do this again for PayPal..

Cheers for the info!

It's to prevent fraud, and is a damn good thing, not paranoia.

Ah, got you.

New buyer having goods sent to a different address. Given that this is what fraudulent card skimmers do I can see the reason.

If you use Paypal then the Paypal address is where the goods will be sent. Will that be an issue as well ?

I think you can have goods sent to a different address using PayPal, but they don't recommend it as you loose their protection (whatever that is).

Yeah I fully appreciate their concern for fraud prevention, just the way they went about it was a little strange.
When an email lands in your inbox with
"Dear customer, please send us a photo of your card/ID" it rings a few alarm bells haha

I fully agree, despite my comments above. I would be as suspicious as hell and want to know a bit more about it as well.

Damn right I'm jealous. I only have a scummy Samsung S7 edge. But don't like advertising the fact because it can cause me embarrassment.
Yep, they sneak in that sort of stuff without so much as a 'By your leave'.
