ya, I never figured out what the purpose of that is. It’s part of their fraud detection program, for some reason your sign up got flaged and they decided they need to verify you. How a rubbing of your cc means anything is an other matter. Even if it’s a stolen CC number it would be really easy to photoshop the rubbing and then fax it in. It’s not like faxes are high quality to even notice my defects.
I don’t know if you can convince support to wave this silly step or not. If you’ve got a scanner and one of the odl things called modems hooked up to your computer you could also fax from home. I think DH is worth it, even if this step is incrediably stupid and annoying.
