Dear Valued Customer,



Our records indicate that you placed order number xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with us at GameStop.com or EBgames.com. Thank you for your business.



To protect you from credit card abuse, if we notice that a high-dollar order has been placed on your credit card and the order is placed from an International country, we must have a copy of your credit card statement in order to process your order.



One of our company policies is to verify the address and credit card information given for all new orders before they are processed. This will help assure the protection of the credit card holder and GameStop.Com/EBGames.com from fraudulent charges.



Unfortunately, because this is an international order, we are unable to contact your bank to verify any information on your account.

In order to help us verify this information via another method you should:

1. Fax your most recent credit card statement.

2. The statement must show your name, address and the last four digits of the card number on it. Feel free to block out all the other numbers.

3. Write your order number at the top of the statement.



If this information is not on the statement your order can not be processed.



3. Fax to 001-817-722-7720.



If you would like to cancel this order simply reply to this email and add the word CANCEL" to the subject line. If you do not reply within 72 hours, we will assume you wish to cancel your order.



Thank you again for your business. We look forward to serving you in the future.

Mmmmm, don't be too quick to assume it's a scam. If they are not asking for any usable info from you this could be genuine.

Does the order number they have given match the order number you have from your order ?

Look carefully at the url of any web site mentioned in the header of the e-mail, does anything look suspicious ?

If you want to be sure go to their website and phone them on the given phone number (or e-mail them) and get them to verify if they sent the suspicious e-mail.

You just might find it is from them after all.

Failing all the above, if you send me your bank account number and pin number plus the three digits of the reverse of your bank card I can check for you. :whistling:

Google the fax number. Seems legit.

But then again, who knows these days!

I'd guess it's probably legitimate, and they just want you to confirm that you're the guy who's ordered the goods, and that your billing address details match the details of your order. You being an international customer probably also raises concerns for them, since for all they know, the card you're paying with could be a card you found on the street, with the address you're sending it to being a friend in a country where the police force wouldn't care enough to investigate fully, but where the credit card company might issue a chargeback.

Personally, I've been in a similar position with a betting website, who wanted me to submit to them a photo of my passport, driver's license, or birth certificate to verify my age. I'd given them a false one, of course (I always do), and they told me that if I wanted my winnings, I'd have to submit the documentation. I threatened to sue them instead. Like ******y am I going to give any company info that could potentially be used for ID theft if they turned out to be as lousy with their server security as ShopTo were. 'Tis up to you of course, but me, I'd sooner scrap the transaction than surrender sensitive information.
