posting credit cars info

The 3/4 digit number on the back (sometimes front) of your card is for security purposes. This number does not appear on any statements you receive from the creditcard company. It basically means you have the creditcard in your hand if you can type that number in. If someone steals your statement or a receipt from a previous purchase and tries to make a purchase online (or phone/mail-order), they will not be able to do so without the number, and alerting the seller (and/or creditcard company) of possible fraud. Did that make sense or come out correctly? If you have more questions, lemme know.

many of the merchants I order from online do require it. I've never had any unauthorised purchases.
