So last friday I ordered a some otterbox cases for droid charge. it went through ok as far as i can tell but today i get an email from them demanding the following

The following information is requested to ensure that the authorized cardholder placed the order. Please email or fax at least two of the following:

- Top portion of the most recent credit card billing statement showing, name, billing address and last four numbers of the credit card
- Photo copy of your driver license
- Photo copy of the front and back of the credit card before the order can be filled (optionally block out all numbers except first and last four)​

what sort of BS is this? the email mentions that they are out of stock. is this some sort of ploy because they sold them too cheap and don't wan to fulfill the order?

i have had enough vendor BS for a lifetime coming off of that hp touchpad deal.

and of course they put a phone number to call in on and of course it didn't have hours so i waste time calling and of course they're not there.

nice AC. nice.

well it took several calls but i finally spoke to someone who had a clue. supposedly using a 1 time CC and a 1 time email address combined with their thinking that my verizon wireless phone's ip address was in norway caused them to think i was fraudulent. I asked them to do AVS (address verification) and it is being shipped to my home address so problem solved.

not sure i would order from them again but it is a good deal on the cases, so i probably will if another good deal comes up.
