Scam - how does it work?

How do they manage to make purchases considering all they ask for is the CVV
(?) number on the back of the card?

They would have to have your card number, address and expiry date already
(+phone number).

The actual email is an urban legend - originally it was $497.99. However as
has been stated before in this group - if the bank or CC company rings you
it is for THEM to prove that they are who they claim to be.

Yes, someone reported this on uk.rec.cycling a few weeks back as having
happened to them, turned out it had been sent by a friend and he had cut and
pasted it, so its looks as if this UL is circulating around at the moment,
look out for the phone one (dont dial 9 or press #90) to be coming your way
soon. No doubt it could happen in reality but the amount of info they would
already need to make the scam, they could use to defraud the cc company
already.
