Note to self: never buy anything from ewiz.com
Here's a paraphrase of a long conversation I had on the phone with
"You'll need to call your bank to authorize shipping to that address."
"I already did."
"Well, we called and couldn't confirm it."
"What number did you call?"
"Well, that's not the number for my bank, call this one: 1-800-yyy-yyyy."
"Oh, we can't do that, that's a number that you gave us, we need to confirm
that it's the right one."
"Well, it's on their website, you can look at it."
"Oh, uh... we did that already, and uh, we already called that number
and they couldn't confirm your shipping address."
"You just told me that you couldn't call that number."
"Oh, but we did."
"Well, so did I, and I was able to confirm it."
"Yes, but we called 1-800-xxx-xxx and they could not."
"But that other number, as I have said, is NOT MY BANK. Call the other one."
"We can't do that, that's a number that you gave us."
Imagine about 4 more cycles of this until they broke down and put me on
hold and did what I told them to do, and then authorizing the shipment.
I was *this close* to getting the approval and then cancelling anyway,
just to be mean.
But, we need the parts and I envisioned myself doing the whole thing
Here's the funny thing -- the first batch of parts went to the same
address, from ewiz.com
, without a problem.
