------------------------------------------
Duplicate Credit Card Charge
------------------------------------------
If your transaction failed to go through, you may see a charge on your
bank's online system for each failed attempt.  This is normal and there
is no need to be concerned.  These are not charges.  They are auth-
orization attempts that will disappear from your account within 24 to 72
hours.  Please contact your bank for more details.  We cannot remove
these since they are not charges.

If you see more than one charge on your credit card, you may have clicked 
submit more than once or click refresh while your credit card was being 
processed.  Please send a single email to 
creditcard@factorydirectcellular.com with your order number, date of the 
order, last four digit of your credit card, and the amounts charged.  
We'll take made the adjustments and email you back.


------------------------------------------
Normal Order Processing / Delivery
------------------------------------------
Your order will be processed within 24-48 hours.  Shipping and delivery 
usually takes 2-9 business days after processing.  Small orders are 
shipped via US mail.  If we ship your order via UPS, you will get a 
separate email with the tracking number.


------------------------------------------
Add item(s) to my order
------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, we cannot add item(s) to an order after it has been 
submitted.  Orders are generally in varying phase of processing, packing, 
and shipping.  We do not have a way to updating the order.  Thanks for 
your understanding.


------------------------------------------
Need to return item(s) for refund/exchange
------------------------------------------
Please refer to the following web pages for additional information on 
returning items for refund/exchange
     http://factorydirectcellular.com/faq/faq_warranty.htm
     http://factorydirectcellular.com/faq/faq_return.htm

Your RMA number is your eight digit order number plus “-refund” or "-
exchange".  For example, if you are sending an item back for exchange and 
your order number is 12345678, then your RMA number is 12345678-EXCHANGE.

Please read the above web page carefully for full directions and 
limitations.


------------------------------------------
Received order, but missing item(s)
------------------------------------------
We generally do not ship partial orders.  When we do, your invoice will 
indicate which item(s) were back ordered.  In most cases, they will be 
shipped within the week.  If an item(s) is missing without an 
explanation, please: 

1) send an email to Missing-Items@factorydirectcellular.com with your 
order number in the subject line
2) include a brief explanation of what item(s) are missing
3) note if the package appeared to be tampered with, torn, ripped, etc…
4) note if the package was packed in a bubble bag, box, etc…
5) include your full mailing address

We’ll do our best to correct any problems asap.


------------------------------------------
Received order, but item(s) incorrect
------------------------------------------
Many items are compatible with multiple phones.  However, this is not 
always noted on the packaging or on the item’s label.  Please try the 
item first.  If you still believe that the item is incorrect, please:
1) send *one* email to Incorrect-Order@factorydirectcellular.com with your order 
number and the incorrect item in the subject line
2) include a brief explanation of what you received and what you should have received.
3) include your full mailing address


------------------------------------------
Missing order
------------------------------------------
If you do NOT get your order after 10 business days, please check your 
confirmation email to verify your address.   Next please check with your 
leasing office or neighbors.  A surprisingly large number of “missing 
orders” turns up at one of these two places.  Note that the 10 business
days do not include weekend and holidays.

If that does not solve the problem, please:

1) send *one email to Missing-Order@factorydirectcellular.com with your order 
number in the subject line
2) include a brief explanation to any address order issues you know of 
that may have caused the delay.  Of course, we understand that in most 
cases, you won’t know what would have caused the delay.  However, some 
customers may have been on vacation or is forwarding their mail. 
3) include your full mailing address
 
We’ll get back to you with additional information asap.


------------------------------------------
Order Cancellation
------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, we generally cannot cancel an order after it has been 
submitted.  Orders are generally in varying phase of processing, packing, 
and shipping.  We do not have a way to updating the order.  Please refer 
to the above section on “Need to return item(s) for refund/exchange” if 
you need to return it.


--------------------------------------------------
Status update on returned item for refund/exchange
--------------------------------------------------
We will email you after we have processed your refund or exchange.  If 
you have not received an email from us after 10 business days of sending 
your item(s) back to us or you already have a tracking confirmation that 
we have received it, you can get a status update by:

1) forward your email inquiry to more-issues@factorydirectcellular.com

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
