I recently made a $1,000+ purchase from mwave.com which was delivered as of yesterday, great I thought. I made another puchase of $500+ to which I got a phone call and e-mail asking for the following "a copy of the front and back of your credit card, license, and signature" The only thing they seem NOT to have asked for is my social security number, plus if I don't comply within 5 days they will automatically cancel the order. I rang my bank who promptly said don't do it. Now my question is: A purchase of over a thousand dollars raises no red flags yet one of just over five hundred does, how come? Anybody else have this experience?. I am following my banks advice and e-mailed them cancelling my order. Shame really, they were spot on. They said it was for security against fraud, I explained I TOO am concerned about fraud and will not be complying.

maybe because the purchases were made so close together.

I did, I explained my reasons for cancelling and got a standard "your order is cancelled" in return, shame really as I am building a PC and out of Newegg, Monarch and Mwave, without any shadow of doubt Mwave and Monarch took the biscuit as far as delivery, ordered sunday night, delivered tuesday morning.

Regards
