Verification Value Code (CVV)
This is a security procedure by the credit card companies to limit fraud when paying over the Internet. It demands of a credit card holder to state a CVV-number in connection with the transaction to verify that he/she has the card in his/her hand. The CVV-code is security feature for transactions through the Internet that is now used by most credit card companies. The code is a 3 or 4 digit number, which represents a cryptic control of of the engraved information on the credit card. That is why the CVV-code is not a part of the credit card number itself. The CVV-code makes sure the credit card holder really posesses the card and that the credit card is legal. Every credit card company have their own name for the CVV-code, but the function is the same. VISA refers to the code as CVV2, Mastercard call it CVC2 and American Express call it CID. The back side of most Visa and Mastercards contain the 16 digit credit card number followed by the CVV/CVC-code. Some banks inly show the last 4 digits of the credit card number followed by the the code.
