    Asked For Sensative Info When Buying From An Internet Store

    So I read some good reviews (on reliability) on a website - 21jewels.com (singapore based company)

    So purchased a watch through their website. I then got an email saying :

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    nn carrying out our monitoring, we have noticed that your account needs further verification in line with current regulations, and we have temporarily restricted your account.

    Your orders will be fully reactivated once we receive the following documents to prove you are the card holder.

    1.) Personal Identification: A clear copy of your Passport, Photographic Drivers Licence or I.D. Card (both sides).
    2.) Payment Verification: A clear copy of both sides of the credit/debit card
    3.) Address Verification : A clear copy of a recent bank statement on which your name and address are clearly visible.

    You may prefer to scan and email the documents to ...

    ------------------------

    This frightened me some what and I wrote back saying that I did not want to give then such details, so if they are not willing to proceed, that I would like my money back (paid via mastercard)

    Has anyone else come across this. What do you guys think !

    Are you serious???

    Tell them to refund your money, and go take another toke off the glass pipe!

    I mean honestly, You are just trying to by a watch. Not applying for the secret service.
    And inform your credit card company of this. Save the email, whatever you do.

    Geez, that's got 'scam' written all over it. Those are just the things they need to carry out a first class identity theft.

    The most I have EVER had to do was fax a copy of my CC to them to prove it was me purchasing the watch, Because I bought it and wanted to ship it to a different address than was on the CC (billing address)

    Notify Mastercard immediately rather than waiting for the refund.

    theyre looking for the three digit security # on the back of your card and the information to support using it fraudulently.

    I purchased a computer case from a reputable LOCAL online seller while living in Vancouver and next thing I knew I was getting charges from Hong Kong.
    The business was asian based and held a small store front. I didnt provide any of the information your being asked to and still got screwed.
