3 digit Verification number when orderin food ocer the phone?

I just order some food over the phone, and the guy needed the card numbers, but he also asked for the 3 difit pin on the back.

Why would he need that? And if he has that would could he potentially do?

I have to give that all the time when I order food as well, It actually was for the purpose of having yourself protected. If someone can’t verify that number, (the security number) then they won’t allow you to order with the card. With fraud on the rise, this is what they do now…

Happens to me when I order chinese food :)

And when I order pizza online.

    They always ask for the verification code when you order anything over the phone or on line.

    Businesses ask for that to make sure you actually have the credit card in your hands and haven’t just purchased the account number from a scam artist.
    Whenever you use a credit card, you risk the employee stealing your information, just a fact of life.
    That’s why you should always keep an eye on your statements for purchases you didn’t make.
    All in all don’t worry, credit card companies don’t hold you responsible if your account is stolen.
