    You really can't blame them for asking. With all the CC fraud these days. Usually a company does this because the
    shipping address you gave them does not match your CC billing address. Mine is that way. CC billing address is a PO Box.
    Shipping is my street number address. I had my CC company add my street address to my account and problem went
    away.....Paul

    That is curious. Did the shipping address on your order match the billing
    address of the credit card?

    I live in NZ where we don't seem to have this problem, but was recently in
    Chicago with girlfriend. Whenever she bought anything with her CC she was
    asked for further ID (oddly enough, I wasn't!). Go figure. I guess if you
    don't like it so much, change countries. :)

    Cheers.

    This is not SOP, in fact the agreements for most card companies
    specifically state that the vendor may not ask for any identification
    over and above the card itself.

    Kelvin electronics is a small outfit that supplies
    educational kits and supplies for a few schools etc.
    they also have a some what good supply of basic
    things.
    in this case i needed some NE2 bulbs only and their
    site popped up to give me exactly what i needed after
    a long failed search for these items.
    so while i was there i decided to get some other
    interesting things of need at a good price.
    any ways, to make a long story short.
    i placed a $100 order, went through all the
    online card verification crap , email etc..
    all was fine.
    this morning i get an e-mail indicating that their
    policy has changed and would require me to send them
    a fax of my drivers license, and Credit card before they
    would owner the order.
    i sent them back a nice E-Mail, i also told them that i will
    be sending my Credit card company a copy of the e-mail that
    requested this info.
    so for any one's interest, if you decide to buy anything there
    you better be prepared to use a check/ money order.
    what really gets me is that they had no problem accepting a
    personnel check with out an FBI check up.
    sounds alittle shady to me.
    just thought you mite want to know.

    Tell them to buzz off! NE-2's are available from Mouser, page 30 of the
    current catalog. One dosen't have to put up with crap from vendors there are
    many options out there.
