I just saw a email that said a payment of $199.99 was to come out of my account on August 10th for Norton products. I never ordered a thing from Norton. There was a toll free number and I called to let them know I didn't authorize any such thing. I gave the invoice number and I was told someone was trying to buying this using my info. They are from the Philippines and the stupid dummies didn't have either of my bank Mastercards I use. One is with my bank and one is with the credit union. They had the last 2 numbers on either card wrong. So they are stupid lousy thieves.

Did you happen to confirm what your mastercard numbers are?
No I didn't. I was just told the last 2 numbers and neither one are it. I get it now what you're saying. I remember this next time but I really don't like giving out my info to anyone I don't know. It's fine if they tell me the numbers they have and see if that's right. I wouldn't give them my card numbers and I don't know who I'm dealing with over the phone. People will try all types of scams to see what they can get away with.

Oh boy... chances are that email is a fake. They get you to cal them... they pretend they have the wrong numbers, for you to either verify the correct ones, or to verify other information and then they do some identity theft or order stuff in your name. Mix... I'd get all your cards frozen asap.

You never call the number on a email like that. Likely it is a scam to get info. You only call the the number of the credit card company if you actually do see a charge posted on your account. Of course if they are trying to scam you they don’t here your correct credit card info.. What ever they are trying to do worked as you started something calling them. Did you even Verify before calling who the number beloged to by checking the internet, their website?

Mix, everyone is trying to help. Can you post a copy of the email?
Your bank wouldn't send you an email saying they need to confirm your 2 debit cards. They know what your numbers are.
A merchant wouldn't contact you saying they need to confirm the last 2 digits. They would simply decline to purchase.
There is NEVER a benefit to call a number or click on a link in an email. If you suspect it's legit, call your bank

If they didn't have the correct numbers, they wouldn't be able to send the transaction through, so still no benefit for you calling the number

So far nothing has happened at all.
Just promise you'll never again call a phone number in an email because they told you something bad was going to happen if you didn't. Also never click on a link in an email.

Call the phone number listed on your card or call your bank.
