    Hey guys. I'm in the middle of paying for an order of Sarms and at checkout my debit card would not work. I emailed the source and they quickly responded to try this and that with none of it working. Then lastly they said we can just do through here, meaning email. I'm very hesitant to give my debit card info and complete this transaction through email. This is a well know research Chem site. But I just don't know. What do y'all think?

    Most Chem sites now use over seas system to use credit cards. So what is probably happening is your back is declining the over seas purchase.

    Find out the name of the processing company and then call bank and tell them u are making this purchase

    if you question the fact if you should give em your card details over email, it shows you dont trust them 100%, so dont do that. odds are high that there database of payment cards processed via email will get "sold/stolen/leaked/hacked" in the future, so why risk. like sfla said, thats the best option to do.

    Thanks guys! The charges came from their supposedly secure server. I clicked the payment key twice trying to make it take my card. But, I know it's crazy as hell to use a debit card for this stuff. I'm never doing that crap again!

    think about it like this. is the marginal benefit greater than the potential loss, or losses you will suffer? another thing you have going against you is that you don't know what the odds of your success will be if you choose this vendor. you don't know much about the business do you? -no history of good business, and never heard good things? if the vendor is worth a damn he'll provide bitcoin payment options for people that cant get their cards to work. i had the same problem did some complaining with my bank and that didn't solve the problem. tried something else using another bank and it worked. well fuk that it was risky, so a few months later i set up a bitcoin acct because the first guy i had problems with had a bitcoin option. damned if know my card worked this time around. no hassles. complain to your bank and give it some time or think of something else.

    Make friends. Everybody knows someone. You might not personally know a bloke in the commodity trade but someone you know could or someone they know. Theres no law about making friends and socialising.

    Almost anytime you click the payment button twice, it will run the transaction twice. As mentioned, a credit card is the safer route by far.

    Most local commodity brokers as you call them are selling what they got online for a substantial mark up. A few are brewing themselves. Regardless your paying 3-4 times what you could get it for online, whether you order international or domestic.

    Unless you befriend the right people, and work your way up the chain.

    I worked up, now I buy direct from source. Yes, its an UGL, but I have used the same guy for 4 years, never had a hiccup with orders, and I have never had suspicion of anything bunk. Plus it doesnt change hands before I get it, so the price is much nicer.
    Previous to this, i worked my way through several sources.

    So as much as I hate to say it, Euroholic is right. Networking is key here.

    Yes. All of you guys are 100% right! Its just another example of yet another hoop to jump through in the wonderful world of UGL business.
    1 of the 2 transactions that were pending on my account has already been removed.

    The online processors are notorious for creating an order every time you click the payment key. I've literally sneezed and made a double purchase of research supplies years ago. Luckily, I was able to get my CC to strike one of the transactions. They still double shipped the order, so I ended up sending the extra order back.

    Someone told me that nobody excepts pre paid credit cards. That's why I ask so many different people the same question and then find an average. Cuz it seems like everyone has different perspectives and it changes the answers.

    Ha. Man I believe it! One of the charges I received has already been taken off my account. But the other is still pending. If I knew I would get the goods I would let it go through. But I just can't trust these dudes.

    Good point Bio! I usually use one of those. But I have had trouble in the past getting those to work. (But not very often) I just didn't have any cash on it and decided to use my debit. Big mistake!

    I've not as had as much luck using those for online purchases as I have in the past, Bio. Hell, you used to could buy online with gift cards at some places, but it has gotten much more.difficult. Call me paranoid, but I don't think the government liked the anonymity of using gift cards online?

    I agree, Bio. Amazon is one of the few places I do, and I'm getting ready to change that as well.

    even on Amazon I would use a cc. I use my cc for everything that way in the event that it gets compromised I am only out the minimum payment until things are fixed. If your debit card gets compromised it creates a real mess. I also like getting the airline miles for just paying my bills

    Yes sir, I unfortunately had to endure that a while back. Local meth head stole mail out of mailboxes in our area. Just so happened my new debit card was in the mail.that day. All he needed was a strip reader and "," Voilą " he had my PIN. Hit me at ATMs for $500 right quick. Fortunately, I check my account online daily and caught it. Took over 4 months to get my $$ back because at first the bank "didn't have" surveillance video, then they had it and said the guy looked like me. He's 5'8" and ~ 157lbs. I'm 6'1"+ and 260 lbs.+. Finally got a copy of the surveillance pics and showed them to my mail carrier because she had mentioned mail theft in our area. She was able to ID him and I provided all his info to the Sheriff's Office. They conveniently had no idea of who he was before then. Later found out he is their local snitch for info, which really pissed me off.
    Needless to say I now have a P.O. box for all insurance and financial mail. Just haven't transitioned to CC for purchases yet, but it is on my "to do" list @ my next trip to bank. Want to compare and see where I can get the best deal but still pay it off within the grace/billing period.


    Edit: The other kicker was he hit 5 different banks in my area, I notified the Postmaster and reported the mail theft. Guy served a total of 5-1/2 months for financial card fraud. That was all. While on house arrest/probation, this genius stole items from the car of a lady who owned a pawn shop biz with her husband. Guess where he went to sell the shit that he had stolen. For that, he got another 4 months.
