Beware Credit Card Scam on Sportive entry

Can't mention names as subject to libel etc, but i am pretty sure given to what has just happened and that was on the back of what happened last year.

Crucial thing is, don;t give them your Date of Birth... no need to just make one up to get into the age bracket you want to be in.

In my opinion a site used for processing entries for various sportive is insecure.

    In theory sportive organisers don't need the full DoB, just the year, but the software used to generate the entry form may not be flexible enough to do that.

    Putting in a slighty fake DoB, i.e. with the correct year date, may be a way to help avoid identity theft issues. Also never used a debit card but instead always use a credit card for online purhases.

    Exactly my point. So post the wrong DOB.
