Alipay never asked me for these things, ever. I put in my credit card when checking out and it worked. then there is the payment verification part (I guess the seller has to accept your order?) and then he ships.
I have used both US and Canadian credit cards on different accounts - never had any issues.
I wouldn’t do what they’re asking because of the risk of mishandling, but it doesn’t strike me as overly suspicious. They are trying to verify that you physically have the card, not just stole the number from somewhere, and that you are the owner of that card. I worked for a credit card company for awhile. We had access to information you wouldn’t dream of in order to verify owner/user, but being in China I’m sure they don’t have backdoors, so they have to ask for it.
Alternatively: cancel the order and use another account with a virtual credit card provider as the funding source for alipay. it has always worked for me. (only downside being this service might also need to verify your identity).
My goodness ‘vaughnsphotoart’, that seems pretty wild. :person_facepalming: … “Me thinks” you are a very smart man for not sending any of that info!
Please do let us know if & when you find out the source of the problem. Good luck ………. :+1:
Oh wait, your from Tennessee?
Are you a VOLS fan?? That might have something to do with it……… ??? …… ….
You know ‘dw911’, I get those same “scam spam emails” from time to time. It amazes me how anyone could be so desperate / gullible as to fall for them… but from time to time people do. :person_facepalming:
