We could use your help though...

*UNAPPROVED VENDOR* FRAUDULENTLY used my credit card to order and ship me product! BELOW IS A LINK TO THE EMAIL EXCHANGES we had to fix the issue - BUT HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?! Two other vendors attempted the same thing but it didn't work. HOW DID THESE PEOPLE GET MY CREDIT CARD NUMBER? IS THIS SOMETHING I MUST WORRY ABOUT EACH TIME I PLACE AN ORDER?

The post above includes naming of a vendor who does NOT participate in the ILK forum. I will happily edit the name out for you. Or please do so. The doc needs no edit.

Welcome to the best kratom forum ever, DonnaeOK!
Please refer to the guidelines about naming unapproved vendors.

Even “warning others” or complaints requires following our guidelines.

Hopefully the issue will be resolved soon. Being upset is UNDERSTANDABLE!

It was resolved, in that I received a refund. How it happened in the first place is still a mystery.

SUPER BIZARRE. Perhaps there’s a lesson in your experience for everyone insisting vendors have credit card processing!

I’m sorry - not funny

YES! How the vendor got my card numbers is still a mystery! And I would rather jump through hoops to get an order completely than risk putting my private information out there for anyone to grab and misuse. SUPER BIZARRE is definitely how I'd describe this event!

Thank you so much for reaching out to me Laurie! I appreciate your energy and time. I am hoping to keep others away from this experience, by AT MINIMUM, sharing it.

Hello donnae, that’s not cool at all, sorry that happened, and this happened with three different vendors ?? ( I read the document) Were they all ordered and sent to your address? Maybe I misread , pretty bizarre for that to happen three x and sent to your address... I’d think that if someone stole my credit # they’d send it to a different address so as to claim the goods ... crazy world , sorry that you had to deal with that.. you said your daughter orders as well but does t know about this .?? Because she doesn’t use Kratom or because she told you she didn’t ?? Just putting out there that if it did happen 3 x and your daughter has your numbers and uses Kratom... I would look into that perhaps . Internet and personal info on there is scary non the less...

Take care sweetie

I set up fraud alerts on my credit cards. Any amount when used I will get an e-mail or text and if it wasn't me I will call and stop the payment.
Someone tried to buy $800 headphones I stopped the purchase payment from going through as soon as I saw the e-mail, the shipping address wasn't mine though.

Your situation where you actually received the kratom you didn't order is very strange. I have a feeling the company might be a sister company to one you have prior ordered from, how else could they have gotten your information and sent it to your address?? Either way its horrible to go through anything like that.

Sorry to hear your fraud story.
I would definitely cancel that card and get a new card with new numbers.
I would try ordering from some of the approved vendors on ILK Forum there is extremely high quality Kratom and most vendors offer discount for mentioning ILK Forum. Many vendors have a permanent ILK discount.
Don’t let a few bad apples ruin your Kratom experience.

Good Luck...
