Card Activation

Wamu just "upgraded" a debit card I never use to another debit card I'll never use. They say "upgraded" but really they just mean "we changed our contract from Visa to MasterCard, so sorry.... you have to go through a bunch of shit."

I went to activate the card online (normally I use the phone) and they wanted:

-- card number
-- 3 digit security code
-- my FULL social security number
-- date of birth
-- account type
-- account number
-- old card number (the visa it's replacing)
-- expiration date of old card

Fuck all that. I'm not giving them my full social security number.

I called the 800 number where they wanted:

-- card number
-- 3 digit security code

And then the robot happily informed me that my card was activated.

Can we get a LOL out there?
