Quick question, Amazon Visa just left a message on my voicemail saying they wanted me to call them about some transactions on my credit card. I think they're referring to my 2 poker deposits "firstname.lastname@example.org(Services and Merchandise)" and "PRINA-PAYMENTS(Services and Merchandise)". Has anyone else had this happen to them? Do I even have to call them back? Just kind of a weird thing to wake up to in the morning.

of course you should call them back. they probably think they are a shady front and are worried about fraud.
call them and authorize it.

you'll most likely just get a recording when you call. it'll list off some transactions and you just need to confirm that it was you who made them.

Gaming merchants disguise their company names from credit card companies all the time. My buddy deposited $200 on bodog last week and got a call 5 minutes later asking if he just purchased $200 worth of books from a store in Ohio. :lol:
Nothing to worry about -- they'll just verify that you know of and approve the transaction and possibly even put that "merchant" on a safe list so you don't get bothered in the future.
