I heard this radio program yesterday and thought my e-villagers need to know about the scam. I have had many phone messages from my credit card company saying I need to call immediately for this or that reason - I just delete them. Fortunately my sweeetie doesn't answer the phone at home and I haven't been replacing the expired cards he carries. He still has the Costco American Express. I figure most scammers won't take american express cards as readily as a Visa or MC!
