(89) Credit Card Payments Submitted over the USPTO Internet Beginning on January 28, 2006, credit card payment submissions made on the USPTO Web site at www.uspto.gov must include the 3-digit or 4-digit security code associated with the credit card in addition to the credit card number. The security code will not be required when the paper Credit Card Payment Form (PTO-2038) or other written authorization is submitted. The security code is part of an authentication procedure established by credit card companies to further efforts towards reducing fraudulent or unauthorized credit card use for Internet payment transactions. The security code must be entered at the time of the Internet payment transaction to verify that the physical card is in the cardholder's possession. The security code appears on all major credit cards and is not part of the credit card number itself. Each credit card company has its own name for the security code (such as CVV, CVV2, CVC2 or CID), but it functions the same for all major card types. On Discover, MasterCard, and VISA credit cards, the security code is a 3-digit code that is printed on the back of the card, often following the credit card number digits. For American Express credit cards, the security code is a 4-digit code that is printed on the front of the cards. If you cannot read the security code, you will have to contact the financial institution that issued your credit card. Effective January 28, 2006, the USPTO Internet credit card payment screen will include a mandatory field to enter the security code along with helpful information to locate the security code on the credit card. Questions regarding this notice should be forwarded to Matthew Lee, Director of the Receipts Accounting Division, Office of Finance, by telephone at (571) 272-6500 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
