Secure site???

  Bazz2000 14:57 24 Feb 2004

Its happened to me a couple of times now. I am trying to register on a website but it wants my credit card number to verify my age. The site seems secure and it has the padlock and they assure me that no money will be taken from my card. Is this a new thing that people are starting to do? Its not a dodgy porn site, its just a chatroom. There is a lot of info on the site explaining why they do this, but I wanted to know if anyone has any experience of this. Any ideas people. Thanks.

forget it, when you wake up in the cold grey light of morning, you will realize what a mistake it was...

How well do you know the company? If they take funds how will you get them back?

Find another chatroom
