Some sellers have waaay too much information

This has happened before. I went to a new–never used before–site to buy something. Filling out the form, I just entered my name and email, and the form was suddenly auto-filled with my address and phone number. Hmmmm

Makes me wonder if many sellers are somehow connected.

This happen to anyone else?

[btw: For safety I used a VCC so it can’t be used again unless I approve it]

There’s a good chance that info is coming from your computer,

Finally found saved passwords options in Outlook and the only ones listed are my two emails. But they do not have my home addy or phone number.

I always check NO when Chrome asks to remember anything.

Ahhhh, just remembered the autofill also filled my usual bank CCN, but I used a VCCN.

I sent an email to the seller asking how they got this info on me.

It’s probably coming from your computer… I doubt the site you’ve never been on before has any way to access your information…

This does not happen on other sites, including those I buy from all the time. They certainly would not have my CCN.

I’m thinking this seller uses a billing system used by other sellers, kind of a group thing. Most small sellers don’t have the time or expertise to manage billing, so they join a group.

I probably bought something from seller A in the past and now seller B belongs to the same billing org. That would explain having my CCN.

I cannot imagine any way my computer would have my CCN.

Got the answer. I somehow joined shopify. No idea how.

They’re some kind of shopping / billing system and keep full details on shoppers.
