    What up, 212?!
    Makes sense that they called to verify... with all the hype, it's a perfect opportunity for fraud and other malfeasance.

    Depending on your card/bank/institution/spending habits, it's certainly not out of the question that this would red flag on some people's cards. It's fine, if your dad misses the call just have him call back and remove any block they may have put in place.

    Most of the times that I've received calls from my bank are when my spending is abnormal to my routine spending and locale. If you dad regularly uses that bank to pay Verizon bills or has purchased anything from the website before I would doubt that they would call. But, it could happen.

    oops just seen this thread I posted one too. They called me today so many times so I could verify my three online purchases last night. Verizon, sgpstore, and icarbons. Good looking out Bank of America;)
