This is a first - CC Alert for leaving a "generous tip"
Anyone have this happen to you before?

Just got an email alert asking me to verify the tip amount

BTW it isn't anything that generous

That happened once to me. I didn't mind since it seems increasingly common for restaurants, or I guess the waitstaff, to try and do this trick

Yeah didn't bother me. Just struck me odd since it wasn't some outrageous amount.

I got one of those alerts on a Capital One Visa. The lunch was $10 or a little less, and I left a $3.50 tip.

More than 30 percent apparently triggers the alert even if it's a paultry amount.

Yeah Capital Obe does it, and it's actually came in handy twice with places putting in the total as the tip (example: $20 ticket, $5 tip should have been $25 but they charged my card $45).

Visa started doing it years ago. I just ignore them

Amex? They recently sent me an update saying they were going to start monitoring similar things that seem out of the ordinary.
