    I did that once. The caller asked for me and I said I would go get him. I told them I was in the bathroom and would be out soon. The silly twit waited over 3 minutes before hanging up. :)

    Posted By: AsterixIs there a surcharge for the service?

    From Citibank, there is no charge for virtual credit cards. Note that you must have a credit card account and a normal credit card to use this service.

    Today, I got a text saying my Chase account had been "locked" due to possible credit card fraud. There was a phone number to call but surprise of surprises, checking it on the internet did not return Chase Bank as a possible holder of that phone number (which was in New Jersey). My app has a conflicts and problems section and it returned "no issues with this account." Obviously phishing but while I knew it exists, I have never personally experienced this particular scam.

    That's not even remotely new--I get those purporting to be from banks, Paypal, internet name registrars, you name it.

    It must work for someone, for there to be so many.
    I never ever get them
