Help, Tiger Direct notebook

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I cracked the screen on a 1.6 C2D lappy, so I ordered the OCZ barebones from them, and 2 HD4870's.

They asked for the last 4 digits of my social! I sat there for like 5 mins and then did it, then it asked me all kinds of questions like a credit history report would.

I did not answer the credit history report stuff.

Did I get Phished? Or is this standard practice for tiger direct ( I am a new customer)

Huh I order from there all the time and I never remember them asking for the last 4 digits of my social security number.

Did you make sure the link looked right?

They should never ask for your SSN. Something sounds wrong about that. Why dont you call TD right now and talk to their customer service about it. They would know best.

it's sounds very unusual as part of a normal online ordering process; I order online all the time, not from tigerdirect because of a screwup 2 years ago, so I can't confirm what's normal for them, but it sounds like you did get phished, either that or walked into some business account ordering process. contact your cc company and give them a heads-up to be on the safe side
