So I played along as usual.

Gave them false information and they tried to verify it…and what do you know…nothing matched.

Sir, can please read the entire card number – all 16 digits.

Me: Sure.

Sir, aloud please.

Me: Oh, I’m sorry. You weren’t very clear. {So I make up 16 numbers.}

Sir, can you verify your zip code?

Me: Do you mean the zip code I’m in now or the zip code where the card statement goes to?

Sir, where the card statement goes to.

Me: Got it…okay 90210

Sir, are you sure that is the right zip code?

Me: I’m pretty sure, yeah.

Sir, nothing is matching. Is the card in your name?

Me: No it isn’t.

Sir, what do you mean no it isn’t?

Me: Well, you didn’t ask my name, you only asked for a card number.
