Well just found out I got skrewed on Yellowbox's

I'm pissed bigtime. Those pricks told me these things were going to be $70 each shipping included. I sent them an e-mail that specifically said I authorized them to charge $840 to my credit card and $840 alone. I just got my statement and the pricks charged me $872.12. I just sent them an e-mail to find out what the f'ing problem is but I'm sure I'm going to eat it since there isn't much I can do now.

After all the leg work you did. I don't mind pitching in a few extra dollars for these. Let me know what the additional cost per unit is as I for one don't mind giving you the extra. In my opinion it was still a bargain compared to what the original price of these things are.

Not telling you what to do but I'd give em a call. Sometimes the person you made the agreement with isn't the same one who runs the bill through and the left hand might not know what the right hand agreed upon.

Dont worry about it too much dude. Call them up and see what thier deal is. Remind them that our friend Ken fucks Kangaroo's like them just for fun, and explain to them that you would like a rebate. But most important be nice

If that all fails then we all kick in a few extra bucks to cover your costs. I'm not gonna see ya get screwed over for something I bought, that wouldnt be right.

I e-mailed them already.

No that doesn't make me feel better that sucks dude.

It's not really about the $32. It's that I had this conversation with them before they charged me. I new they tried to charge me more to begin with when my account got cancelled. I told them $840 is what they said and they said they straighted it out and it may be a couple bucks more for the exchange rate but not $32 more. I just think they could have been more honest with me. Then again. They did rush the shipping after all the crap happened and maybe charged me for it.


Hey I shouldn't of even posted this. I was just pissed today in general. I'm going to Strats if I have to drive my wifes Ford Aspire with Banana on the license plates .

Crap, my trousers must have been to tight today

Ok I am assuming you have not gotten your credit card statement. It will state on there the price you paind and the echange rate that was used netting out your total charge. At least mine did on my Germany trips.

I did get it but it only had the total charge on it. I'm calling the cc co. later, I'll straighten it out

OK talked to the CC co and they say that they charge the %4 above the exchanged rate for overseas transactions. Appearantly it's in the 12 page fine print agreement packet . This seems way steep to me but I guess that's life. Pricks

Never use First USA for overseas Transactions.



OK it's in the past and I'm happy now

Thanks for the warning Brian. I have a First USAard myself and was intending to use it for the same thing.

Let me know about the extra charge for us.
