Thermite Media / Unauthorized billing
I ordered my book from Thermite Media through Amazon.com during the last days of December (the 30th or the 31st). They sent me a shipping confirmation on January 2nd saying I should wait 2 full weeks before contacting them. I contacted them a little early (only a day or two) and was told to wait another week. When I contacted them the following week, they told me the package wouldn't be considered missing for 2 more days, on that Friday.
On the following Monday, I sent an e-mail telling them I wanted my money back and that I would return the package unopened, at which time they told me I could only get back what I paid less shipping.
Since I purchased the book through Amazon.com, I contacted them and they are taking care of it (yay, Amazon!). Also, once I googled Thermite Media, I found that they come up in a number of eBay blogs--and it's not good stuff.
