YesAsia asking for card details??


Established Member
Just put an order in for Motorstorm and Resistance of Man. Put my card details as usual and the order was fine. However, got an email this morning asking for a copy of my credit card to verify my address.

i'm a bit wary about doing this and wandered if anyone else doing whether it was ok to proceed??

Its common practice with them mate. Its to stop people stealing your card andf buying stuff from them. Same happened to me and i had to fax a photocopy to them. They are only looking to check you details.

Go ahead its fine.

They want your credit card statement showing your name and address. not your credit card i think. There is no address on credit cards:p

But I don't get a monthly statement from Cahoot, its all on the internet!?

Be careful,
they are asking for either a scan of your monthly statement or a scan of the front and rear of your card,
whereas a scan of your statement with name and address is fair enough (a lot of places have done this on first orders), asking for a scan of the front and rear of your card (with just the sig blocked) is a very irresponsible thing thing to ask for. Very surprising that a respected store should be asking for this.
Best bet is just to pay via Paypal in the future with them

I had a US site ask for a scan of my card front/back a few years ago. I didn't like the sound of that at all and contacted the card company who basically told me not to do that under any circumstances. I cancelled the order and got the stuff somewhere else.

Had to do that with Lik-Sang couple of years ago to import PSP's. Never had any problem then or since.

I use PayPal with YesAsia and have bought PSP console from them & loads of games. Well established trustworthy site. Use PayPal if you have one.
