As Field Reps, we have no say so or input into company business policy making. We are here to help customers with their helis when we can.

The question you are asking can only be answered by Century management.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

I called and asked one of those management folks Steve referred to. In a nutshell, not "word for word" here is your answer.

"This is a practice used to verify that the overseas customer, making an order for the first time with a credit card, is actually the cardholder."

in MY opinion, with the credit card abuse and fraud problems that are much more difficult to persue from overseas, it is a way to help keep costs down and losses from happening with new accounts. This protects both YOU, as a cardholder, and THEM as a merchant. BTW, this is only for a first time order....subsequent orders are not subject to this "screening".

Hope this helps explain it.

We have different rules in Europe and Sweden that protects the cardholder and the merchant better (VISA is take most of the risk).

But in the states the merchant is takes most of the risk, so If they don't verify enought, the maybe don't get any money...

Tord, I'm also need some parts. PM or e-mail me if you whant to save some freight cost (I will buy from Ricks).

What a load...

The merchant is never at risk if the ship to address is the same as this bill to address, the customer's name is on the card (fax it over), and you supply the verification code on the back. Fill these requirements and VISA takes the hit every time if there is an issue.

Tord, shop somewhere else that has the proper technology in place to complete your order.

Adam
thank you.

Interesting to note that people with nothing at risk are quick to reject the safeguards that others take to minimize their risks.

kind of like a "truck stop lawyer".

The international credit card risk is much higher, as the issuing company typically is not a US based one.

The gentleman from Sweden asked for an answer. Agree with the logic or practice as you will. Simply the answer.
