they used to. when I worked in a record store (back when there was still vinyl!) we had to call the credit card companies for authorizations. I was told by these agents to cut up some credit cards. It was awful. Haven't seen anyone do this lately though. Maybe they don't anymore because people complained.IntlSet said:ARE YOU KIDDING. Are they allowed to do that?
IntlSet said:I don't see why anybody should be embarrassed about it.... my card has been mistakenly declined several times because CITICARD is constantly blocking my account since they get paranoid about my card being stolen.
I don't think you should assume anything just because someone's card was declined. And there are way more things to be mortified about than having your card declined.
