Online shopping safety tip: When you proceeed to check out of a ecommerce site, be sure you are on the same website of the company and not moved to another website that you know nothing about. You can check by looking at the address bar window in your browser. ALWAYS be sure that you see the closed lock on your browser when you're giving your credit card information. On Netscape it will be a solid key. You can also click on the lock to view and install the secure certificate.
In order to protect our customers against fraudulent use of your credit card we ask for your Credit Card Security Code.
A CSC is a special security code feature on your American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa credit card. CSC's are not raised, so they are not scanned into standard credit card readers. In theory, these numbers are only visible to you. When you give your CSC to a merchant, you assist the merchant in verifying that the order is being placed by you, the card holder.
FiltersUSA requires you to enter your CSC whenever you place an order online to help us detect fraudulent use of your card before your account is charged. This simple step allows us to greatly enhance the safety and security of our ordering process. You may receive a call from our sales staff to verify your order if your CSC is missing or invalid.
- Visa, MasterCard, or Discover Credit Card Users: Flip your card over and look at the signature box. You should see a credit card number followed by a special 3-digit code. This 3-digit code is your Card Security Code.
- American Express Credit Card Users: Look for the 4-digit code printed on the front of your card just above and to the right of your main credit card number. This 4-digit code is your Card Security Code.
