I'm guessing that in addition to your security number they will have changed your expiry date, which you do need to use your card on most sites.
Ahh very true. I knew there was some detail I was missing.
Call me old fasioned but I wouldn't touch one of those sites with your credit card.
phew! I am more worried about bad guys using one of those sites with my credit card number :})
Is the 3 digit security number on the back of the card the same?.
No, I got a new security number on the back. Still if people have access to card numbers there are plenty of places to use a CC # online without knowing the CVV code on the back.
I recently had my credit card "disabled" by the bank and received a new one the next day in the post. The premise being they detected "dodgy" activity on it. Strangely the new card had the same number.
The Downtown payment machines have now had the CC payment option unavailable for a few days now.
