Mail Order Rule
You should know that the federal government has strict rules covering mail-order and credit card transactions. The "30-Day Rule" requires businesses which use mail or telephone-order sales to ship with 30 days of receipt of a consumer's order. Their advertising cannot state or imply that they can deliver in the advertised time unless they have a reasonable basis for stating or implying same. The law states that if no shipment time is stated, the company is reasonably expected to ship within 30 days. If they discover they cannot ship on time, the law states that they must seek your agreement to delay shipment, which is usually done by their mailing you a postcard giving you the opportunity to cancel the order. If you don't agree to the delay, the company must promptly refund all the money you paid or credit your credit card.

Fair Credit Billing Act
If you are ever erroneously billed for a product or service which you didn't order, and you cannot resolve it with or cannot contact the company which has charged your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider. Your credit card company has published its own procedures and you should follow those procedures or contact the credit card company for a copy or explanation of procedures. You have rights under the federal Fair Credit Billing Act which states that you must send a written letter to the credit card company within 60 days of the date on which the first credit card statement containing the erroneous billing was mailed to you. By mailing the letter certified mailing "return receipt requested", you will record the mailing date should you ever need to prove it. You can either enclose a copy of the bill with your letter to your credit card company or include full details of the "date of purchase", the "date of posting", "amount", "name and address" and "credit card number" together with any other relevant details regarding your contact with the retailer and its response. This will allow the credit card company to review your claim. Your credit card company must reply within 30 days of receipt of your claim. If you have a bill in dispute, the credit card company cannot damage your credit rating or report your account as delinquent. Most banks will cover any charges that result from unauthorized use of a credit card or, at worst, they'll limit your liability to $50 (which they are required to do by federal law).
