Does any one know of a cgi script which combines a fom mail program similar to matt Wright's with a credit card verifier similar to Spiders (located on Matt's site)?

Since both scripts allow modification as long as you keep the copyright notice intact, your best bet would be to combine the two in whatever fashion you choose.  One easy way is to make the card verification program one big subroutine which accepts a card number, a card name, and an expiration date.  Then just replace the valid and invalid routines with whatever value you wish to return and do what you want inside the formmail program.  If you make the credit card verification routine an external file with your new subroutine, then it will be easy to include the routine in later CGIs.

I have considered the possibility of combining the two programs.  I had hoped that somebody would have done so already so I wouldn't have to re-invent the wheel.
