Credit Card Dispute Abuse Policy
Seller strives for customer satisfaction, and this fact is verified by customer feedback, as well as third-party organizations that monitor our performance. There is normally no legitimate reason for a customer to dispute a credit card charge (also known as a "chargeback") with us. It has been reported that a small minority of online shoppers have attempted to dispute charges fraudulently, with the criminal intent to obtain merchandise without paying for it.
To protect ourselves and our good customers, we have adopted the following policy:
All instances of chargeback abuse will be reported as delinquent accounts for collection. This action will also be reported to major credit bureaus, and may be part of a consumer's credit file for 7 years. We also reserve the right to file a police report for credit card fraud, and seek criminal prosecution, along with a report to the FBI Internet Crimes division, as appropriate. We further reserve the right to report the incident for inclusion in a chargeback abuser database.
If you believe you are entitled to a refund or adjustment through no fault of your own, please contact our Customer Service Help Desk. Our friendly & courteous customer service staff is here to assist you.
If you need to return an item, you must first obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number by calling our customer service number 631-468-8827 Monday – Friday 10am to 5pm EST. Returns without RMA numbers cannot be accepted. You are responsible for safe return shipping, so please make sure that your return is adequately packed and insured. Please read the return conditions below:
- All returns require Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA).
- We must receive your return within 30 days of purchase.
