My DreamHost account was tampered with and after i contacted DreamHost I got the following reply. Does DreamHost ask for the first and last 4 digits of your credit card to verify who you are?
I can't think of any other way to verify. The panel already displays the last four digits. The first four aren't that big of a secret, but it would verify that you're the person who paid for the account.
Thanks for the reply, I just sent them the info. Hopefully I'll have access to my site again (It's down right now ... arghhh).
