Credit Cards and Assholes
Author: Graeme Olsen Date Posted: 18 December 2014
For some reason, some people are assholes.
We lose money on a regular basis because a particular group of these assholes think it's OK to use stolen credit cards to buy our items. We ship the item, and then the real owner of the credit card finds the transaction, reverses it, and then the bank takes the money back off us (Oh yeh, and slugs us a "chargeback fee" for the privilege).
Either way, we lose out big time, so we've had to put in place a new policy where we will only accept the following payments for cameras:
- Direct Deposit
- Credit Card IN PERSON (no credit card transactions will be accepted online or over the phone)
We apologise if this causes any inconvenience to people, but unfortunately we have no choice. You've won, credit card scumbags.
We'd love your feedback on this situation. Will this policy affect you? Have you been a victim of credit card fraud? Let us know in the comments section below.
