Credit Card Security Measures


A colleague of mine relayed this funny story of how he was at the mall buying a gift for his wife. The gift turned out to be a brand new Samsung Galaxy S II, which is also the first smart phone his wife has ever owned/used.

Now the funny thing is he used a credit card to buy the unit and upon purchase, the phone number registered to that credit card got an SMS containing the amount that was just swiped from the card. Guess who's phone number was registered to his credit card?

Yup you guessed it. Minutes later, he received a text from his wife,

"Wow. 1700 bucks. Can't wait to see it. Thanks honey!"

She loved the phone by the way.

hahaha... there goes the surprise.

One good thing, he can't buy anything expensive and have nothing to show to his wife. Don't buy for GF when your wife receives the notification! LOL

That's cute. At least she likes her gift although it wasn't a surprise.
