Miffed **HELP PLEASE** Online Games - Credit Cards

Alright, so I get an email to beta test for a particular game. I need a valid credit card number to verify my address, and I go to my parents for it. But no matter what I say, they think that it's a scam, and that they'll be cheated somehow, or have the number stolen. Can someone else find a way to explain why a credit card number is needed for a video game beta test, and confirm that they WON'T be charged? It says so right on the email, but they still don't get that it's secure material, and they can't just give it to anyone. Any and all help is GREATLY appreciated.

Just steal their credit card late at night when they aren't looking. They'll never know, considering I can damn near garauntee that they WILL NOT be billed.

I don't know why the Matrix Online is forcing you to use credit cards when beta testing. I guess it's just to make sure that you're of age or something.

Registration Tips:

Please follow these registration tips, as any incorrect information may prevent you from participating in The Matrix Online Beta.
Enter your real Name.
Use your correct Email address.
Enter your actual Date of Birth.
Provide us with VALID credit card information. (Your card will NOT be charged.)
Make sure your Billing Address matches the information your credit card company has on file.
Make sure you keep your Username and Password in a secure location.


That's what it says... I'm assuming it's just to keep it secure, and if I distribute it, they'd have a way to sue me/know who I am. (?)

how about calling the company responsible for matrix online and have them verify that you wont be billed... and have your parents in the presence of the phonecall (unless you can put them on the phone as its state?.. or you could ask for hardcopy proof in emal form?)
