    Ugh..... that's terrible to hear.

    I feel bad for both the store, and the buyers. Given the community, I'm sure these people (The store) will likely be vilified and lose a lot more in this deal.

    They should have warned their cc company ahead of time, but being a small operation like that they probably had no idea that the CC company would freeze their account based on the huge spike in transactions.

    Guy offers group buy on DoubleStar AR-15 lowers at $78 a piece.

    Little mom and pop is taking delivery of the group order.

    Spreads to other forums.

    Guy gets overwhelmed with people ordering 5-50 AR lowers at a time.

    Little mom and pop normally does 2K of credit card transactions in a year.

    Little mom and pop gets overwhelmed with credit card and phone in orders.

    Little mom and pop does $100K of credit card transactions in a matter of weeks.

    CC company freezes little mom and pop's credit account and cancels pending CC transactions.

    Guy still has the cash, checks, and money orders that were mailed in.

    ?????

    Guy profits.

    He's not running off with anyone's money. Things happen. Group buys take some time. They aren't for people with ADD who need their stuff right now.
