Quote Richie Royale:

You should order the product on the Web, but give the GAK shop address as the delivery address.




Nice try but it wouldn't work - the billing address of the card would not match the delivery address, and all manner of CV2 security code mayhems would ensue. They'd be "I'm sorry mate" (they always call you 'mate'), we can only deliver to the card-holder's address! It's for security! And fraud prevention!"
And I'd be "but it's your own shop! How could it be a scam? You'd hardly steal it yourselves, would you?"
and they'd be "No but it's the terms and conditions of the card merchant!" etc etc and doubtless I could string it out for about 20 minutes, but it would still end with a "We called, but you were out, lol!" card and me having to spend Saturday morning getting a train to Crawley to collect it from the courier's depot. Or something.


This reminds me of another time, ages ago, when HSBC rang me up from Manila to say that they'd stopped my card due to a fraud attempt, and they issued me a new one, but this scundered GAK who hadn't processed the transaction yet for my Akai MPC4000 or sthg like that... thing is, HSBC had already done the part where they'd taken the money off my card, they just hadn't given it to GAK yet. So GAK for months and months kept ringing me up demanding that I pay them. I I'd keep going "but I did! you need to speak to the VISA people!" and I'd ring HSBC to check and they would ssay "yes tell them to re-present the transaction to the merchant" or sthg like that, and they never would and they'd keep ringing me up and being all "cross" with me and I'd be like "Oh go away and stop being so silly" and I wonder if they ever did get their money cos it was completely ahine......
