Recently bought some plants on the IN. Very happy with the purchases BUT There was an additional 200 dollars added to the bill but not from the nursery from a food store in china lol Have cancelled the CC obviously and since the ONLY place I use a CC is on the IN was wondering how to prevent this in the future?? One more ?? How was this done??
Thanks gary

Was that $200 or $2.00. I ordered some flea stuff from one vender and no shipping but found 1.76 from the same vender. Don't know what that was for but I'm calling tomorrow to find out plus I still haven't gotten the stuff yet! Grrr

RE: Internet purchases

200 bucks not quite a hundred twice . originating from a food store in China lol Obviously got the number from the purchase from the nursery. card was cancelled and turned over to fraud so looks like I won't have to pay.
My order came through exactly as ordered though.
Have had very good luck in the past except for a couple of plants that I think are mis identified. but I kept them anyway. Think I'll write a check in the future will take longer but see no other recourse?? Good luck gary

RE: Internet purchases

Gary, use Paypal. It protects your credit card information. Any internet vendor that has any experience taking online orders these days accepts Paypal.

If they don't, a second option is to go to your credit card account online and generate a temporary/virtual/disposable credit card number. Not all credit card banks offer this option, but some do. See link below for more information.

RE: Internet purchases

I just cancelled the card and send a check. Takes longer but since I seldom order on line seems like a good solution . But if you only buy every 2/3 years ??
Thanks for the info gary
