    Has anyone ever made an international order on adameve.com? I recently made a purchase and got a reponse from someone using a pheinc.com email address stating that they were unable to process my credit card purchase because they could not verify the the billing address for my credit card. In the email, they also requested me to make a photocopy of my driver's license and credit card statement for address-verification purposes. That's a bit odd.

    So, I replied to the email and said that if they weren't able to process my credit card transaction, I would make the payment via PayPal instead. They replied and told me that only US residents can make the payment via PayPal.

    WTF is up with that? Has anyone had any trouble buying things on adameve.com from overseas?

    This is all very weird...

    I'd call they company directly to confirm this and do it over the phone with the.

    However when googling the website you gave as the origin on the email the first website that comes up is http://www.adameve.com/employment.aspx and the pages contains email address for sending your resume and the address is at the same domain, so there is a good chance it is legit.

    Yeah call Adam and Eve...that sounds really strange. No place should ask for a copy of driver's license and credit card statement.

    Have you moved recently...that might be part of it, I have tried to order stuff online before and it didnt work because I had moved and my new address didnt match the one that was on my credit card.

    Technically Canada is an international order....and I have not had any problems.

    Call the company.....always scary getting emails asking that sort of stuff

    Hi boys & girls,

    Thank you all so much for the replies.

    The reason that they couldn't verify my billing address is because I had put down the shipping address by mistake. I had explained this problem to them, and told them that I would email them the correct billing address, but they didn't seem to be interested in knowing the correct address. Rather, they insisted on seeing a copy of my credit card statement and driver's license.

    What seemed very strange to me, other than their request to see the copies, is that they told me that PayPal would only work for US residents.

    I am not going to call them because I don't justify spending the money on international phone call to sort this kind of silly things out.

    Oh well, I will try making a payment via PayPal and see what happens. I guess I will have to find a different kind of "surprise" for my girlfriend if this doesn't work out.

    OK. So it looks like the request was from adameve.com. We have exchanged a few more emails since I posted here last, and it seems like I will never be able to order from them online because they insisted on seeing a copy of my driver's license or credit card statement. Neither of them is in English, and even if it was, I wouldn't give them the copies anyways. That just seems too weird.

    So, can anyone here suggest a few more online shops?

    Thanks.

    It might help to know where you are. I went on a leather/vinyl mission a while ago and found lots of UK websites. Alas, the exchange rate is in the toilet for us right now, so no British goodies for me :)

    Did you check the FS archive? Although, most of those will be US shops too. Sorry :sadwavey:

    Is it really that difficult to send a copy of your driver's license? I've had to do that with a few online transactions of different sorts.

    I am in Taiwan.

    I have ordered toys online before from a few different North American companies without any trouble. I don't know why adameve.com is being so strict on their address-verification policy.

    Not at all, but none of my ID's is in English.

    So, any suggestions on good online toy stores?

    Mail order fraud. I guess it picks up more this time of year.

    if it's a legit request, what's teh big deal? :dunno: i can understand being freaked out at first, but if you are sure that it's from the company and they only want to verify . . . chances are they're doing it to protect your identity, not make things difficult for you.

    you said the IDs aren't in english - is it not written in a language they could match? what i mean is, is the actual writing on the ID in different characters from the Latin alphabet? is that the problem?
