This would be an added measure. Or Do not ship any item until payment has been cleared; this shouldn't delay the service by more than 1-2 days.Would asking for the 3 or 4 digit "security code" help prevent this? That means you have the card in your hands. Both me and wife have been hit before on 1 of our cards, bad spending in Mexico & Spain. It's a pain.
Thanks for the positive responses. The payment was cleared before product sent. If I was in St Pete I would go to the address the product was shipped to. There isn't to my knowledge any insurance for something like this. We do collect the 3/4 digit security codes, but all data must have been stolen including the security code. I cross checked the forum and they were not a member of the forum. What makes it worse is that they actually called me to discuss some product questions. The phone number used on the order is now a fax, the number they called me from is disconnected, the email address worked and now bounces back. I did look up on the IP addresses (2 orders from 2 different IP addresses) one in Tampa and one in Jacksonville. The name the cell phone is registered to is a Hien Le. But is now disconnected. The name used to purchase was Dan Khola.
I appreciate the offer to reimburse, but it is my risk/reward I take in trying to build the store.
The seller of that car, Select Auto Imports, is a long time used import car dealer in northern Viriginia.
