The way they work is to ask you to confirm or deny a group of charges against your card. That's all. You get a list of date, charge source and amount. At the end you press a phone button to indicate whether or not you made the charges. They don't ask for any identifing information. I don't know what happens if you press 0 to speak with a real person or if you indicate that one or more of the charges are false. -- Michael Rasmussen, Portland Oregon Be appropriate && Follow your curiosity http://meme.patch.com/memes/BicycleRiding Get Fixed: http://www.dampfixie.org The fortune cookie says: When I reflect upon the number of disagreeable people who I know who have gone to a better world, I am moved to lead a different life. -- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar"
