Does DreamHost ask for card number to verify you

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?

  • “Please verify the first 4 digits and last 4 digits of the credit card you last used to renew your DreamHost account. Once I can verify this information I’ll get you back into the account.”

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).
