Oh my. Yep.
#1 - DO NOT USE MONEY ORDERS. Credit cards is safest! You could have done a chargeback had you used a credit card, which I'm sure you know now.
Some people say they don't have credit cards and can't get a credit card - but you know, most banks now have debit cards, and they carry the visa/mastercard logos on them - and in many cases, most places will take that card.
I never - ever - use any place that doesn't accept a credit card. I ordered from this one site, and I returned the product because it wasn't real (handbags) and it took them 30 days to refund my money. But you know, if it weren't for my credit card payment, I think I'd still be begging for my money back, because they did everything they could to keep it. Thank goodness for Credit Cards.
