Hi:
Yes, I know you shouldn't send credit card information via email. A tour company in the Czech Republic needs my credit card information and does not have a secure site.Here's my idea: I have three different email accounts - one is Verizon, one is Google mail, and one is my work account. Suppose I broke up the information and sent it from the three different accounts? Would that be safe?  BTW, my work account offers a secure sending function. The only catch here is that someone within my corporation could see what I sent, although it would only be part of my card info. Besides, it's a hospital chain, and someone who could access emails could probably also access patient accounts with SSN's, birthdates, etc.

 

Thanks.

I would be inclined not to send any sensitive information by email...

 

Why not phone them with the info?

Regards
