From other threads it does look like they can see what you are buying, as if the amount doesn't speak for itself!

Is this a big enough deal that we should make ask the mod to change the title of this thread or create a new thread?
I think I've heard of similar language used by other CCs, but I would be shocked if WF could actually see that is what you were buying. Personally, I have not read of anyone getting rejected for points from something like that, but maybe it has happened. Unless you told them that's what you were buying, I don't think it will be an issue, but we'll find out I guess. And WF is somewhat incompetent anyways. I've dealt with them for the last 6 months. And my wife will be dealing with them for the next 6, sort of.
