    I m trying to buy a Reseller account for 49$...

    I m probably going to use a credit card to make the payment, a CC from a friend, since I dont have one...

    But I get the ticket, saying that I need to call there to confirm my account, and send my CC scan :/

    Problems, I can't scan my friend CC (He dont trust in internet), and I m unable to call then, since I m without a phone, and when I tried to call, they get me on hold for 10 minutes before I get disconected! :nemoflow:

    Sounds fishy. Do you not have an account? Will the domain be registered under your name or his? With billing and register info being different, that may be a flag.

    They are just trying to reduce fraud. If you can't scan the credit card you might just want to get a prepaid credit card and start over.

    Also, if your friend doesn't trust the internet why did he allow you to order with his credit card over the internet?

    I'm sure you will come up with some resourceful solutions to these minor problems if you have what it takes to make it in internet marketing and bh.

    best of luck!

    I used to work for HostGator and they are very strict about that. The card holder will need to call in and a copy of the cc plus ID they probably will not budge on. I would suggest just paying through paypal since you don't have a CC
