    I've been dealing with RHS since 2007 unfortunately they stopped selling carts
    so i was looking for a legit site to buy GW and chosed Mod Central,today i received
    an email from them notify me that it's out of stock and have to wait till 29th feb
    so GW send them a new shipment or get Sky instead..... i asked them no!! just
    refund my money back.
    now i receive another email telling me that they have to cut 25% of my payment
    cos card processor company charges them fees for selling modchips and stuff .
    wth i know its kinda gray market but they looked professional? am i the only one who
    faced this issue with them??

    If it was listed as in stock when you placed the order, then they are in the wrong for listing it as such. How did you pay? If it was credit card, call your credit card company and tell them they are refusing to refund you on something that was supposed to be in stock, and they'll do 100% reversal. Same with other methods like PayPal. As long as you used a payment method that can be disputed by your bank, you should be able to get your money back.

    If he still refuses to give you your money back, threaten to contact local police.

    Yep, they are assholes. Their site will say it's in stock, than you get screwed when you find out it's not in stock and have to wait.

    Since they have NOT processed anything as it pertains to your order, there is no way they can charge you a fee. Until the begin to work your shipment, you should never be charged anything. I would inform them that either give you a full refund or you will turn them over to your banks fraud investigation team, the local police and the postal service. Yes, you are ordering an item that is considered illegal in most parts of the world, but that is not the important issue. You use it for "homebrew". There is multiple ways to get your point across and just because they choose to use a horrible company to process cards IS NOT YOUR FAULT. They need to eat any costs for mislabeling their stuff. You agreed to buy the GW card, not a SKY. They advertise quick shipment. Since they are unable to fulfill their end of that agreement, they are in violation of the terms of service you agreed to leaving them in violation of the purchase contract..

    Chinese New Year guys. It lasts 23 days so that's probably why the long delay. No bugger working in China to produce cards or ship them.

    Then contact your carrier instead of ranting in a thread.

    So cancel and tell them you won't be home to accept shipment because you won't be back in the states for a while. if they ask to hold your order tell them no because you're concern that once things start progressing orders could be mixed up.

    I personally never had any issues cancelling orders from card resellers because i take a different approach to situations.
