    How secure is this


    I got this from a seller on ebay, and I was wondering how secure this method is. I understand either of this can be intercepted, but what are the chances that both will be:

    If you want to
    send us your charge card number via e-mail please send the
    first 8 digits in one email and the balance of the digits and the
    expiration date in a second email.

    I can't tell you what the chances are, but I definitely wouldn't do it. These people are going to be able to process a transaction with your credit card number, but they can't take it over the phone, or if they're dead set on email, use encryption software? Sounds pretty shady to me.

    Nothing secure


    It can be easily intercepted by anyone who could log in their mail server.

    But I think the worst security is their "secure" method to get your credit card number. I think they're not professional at all.

    Trust starts at home -- You


    The Better Business Bureau states:

    if it is too good to be true ............Don't

    Same with Security:

    If someone will not apply the norm in Https or ...... Don't

    Call them up and say Hey I wish to buy your product but ........

    Valid Business people want your business and your next purchase.
    They do not wish to sell junk and say goodbye.

    Checkout any company with the BBB and call them if they are not listed and ask why ?

    example : Doug the Drug on the Corner selling Crack is NOT a BBB candidate. Nor is Trish the Dish.

    Common sence -- Yours should tell you that.

    Example 32 : Callme. I will bill a Holiday on Your credit card. Free Travel. Mine.

    Humor not included in cost. Taxes extra.

    Thanks
