 Fraud Verification Policies on items being shipped:
If you place an order with us that is being sent to an alternate address other than the cardholder's verfied address on file with the card holders issuing bank, your order might be subjected to additional scrutiny by our fraud department and could be delayed - we will notifiy you if this is the case.

The following instances are especially suspicious and will automatically trigger your order to be placed under a higher level of fraud detection:
• Your order is for Next Day Air to California, Miami, or New York
• Your order is shipping to Canada or a foreign country and the value exceeds $250.00.
• Your order is being shipped to an alternate address other than the cardholder's verifiable address and the order is $250 or higher.
• Your order is shipping to a foreign country and you have selected an alternate address other than the card holder's address

• Your order is over $500 and is shipping Next Day Air or 2nd Day Air.
• Your order is over $1000 and we google your address and it appears to look like an industrial area with a large semi-truck pulled up to a docking bay.
• You've placed an order and what you've ordered makes no sense and is too random and appears to be suspicious in nature.
• You've placed an order over the phone and have it charged to your credit card telling us that it will be shipped but then decide to have it picked up locally and not shipped to the card holder's address.

The credit card companies don't do much protecting of vendors anymore and we have been forced to take these above pre-cautions in order to insure that we are not sending out merchandise to scammers.  We apologize to you in advance if you are a customer that we contact and have to inconvenience you for a little bit more of your time in order to verify that you are a legitimate customer and not someone engaged in fraud.
