Dear Visa Cardholder,

Continuous Monitoring is an integral part of Visa's multiple layers of security. In addition to other fraud monitoring tools, we can often spot
fraud based upon transactions on the card that are outside of cardholders typical purchasing pattern.
This allows us to spot fraudulent activity as quickly as possible and acts as an early-warning system to identify fraudulent activity.

During a recent checkout we detected suspicious activity and your Visa card may have been compromised. Fraudulent activity made it necessary
to limit your card for online services.

Your Case ID Number is: AY09GP32DD06

Conform to our security requirements and in order to continue online services with your card, we must validate your identity.

Visa takes online security very seriously so that you can shop safely on the Internet. As part of our commitment to fighting fraud we have the
right to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety
of any person, or violations of the terms and conditions for using Visa.
