No. of Recommendations: 5
So last week I ordered a rifle scope for my husband (Father's Day present). About 10 seconds after I placed the online order American Express sent a text to my cellphone saying a large purchase was made online with my card and if it wasn't me, to please call right away.

Then today I got a call from the retailer. They wanted to verify that yes I really placed this order with a different shipping address then billing address. Their system also showed this was a business address and could I confirm that was true? (Yes, all true. It was my work address.)

Glad to see that companies are being so proactive since they would be the ones on the hook if $600 walked off.
