Silly Security: Don’t Show Me The Secret, Then Confirm I Have It!

I just received a replacement credit card from Health Equity because my previous card is expiring. Their validation screens made me laugh.

The first screen shows the card you are replacing, and includes the last four digits of the card.

 
Then the following screen asks for the last four digits of the card number “In order to verify possession”.

You probably shouldn’t tell me the last four digits before asking me to confirm that I have the card.
