Count me in as someone else that placed an order on Dec. 22nd, with only an order confirmation to show for it. Luckily I have not been charged, but have contacted Mastercard to ensure they can't. No answer to phone calls, or emails. I've complained to Yahoo Shopping and they said they would contact the merchant, but no joy. When I contacted them again, this is what they wrote:

We appreciate your patience regarding this matter. If you think you may be a victim of fraud, we recommend that you contact the Internet Fraud Complaint Center, your local postal inspector and/or the Federal Trade
Commission at:

It may also be appropriate to contact your local law enforcement officials (through a non-emergency number).

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Shopping.

They obviously don't keep tabs on the merchants that they deal with, but we get sucked in thinking they're legit simply because it's Yahoo or Amazon!

    I completely agree and unfortunately have just discovered that I am their latest victim. After reading several of these complaints, I filed my own with the BBB, and once I got to your complaint, I investigated the Yahoo! issue further. I submitted a report of abuse to them, and I also realized that MookieGifts does not provide their "Yahoo Username" nor does their URL or About Our Company page (or anything else on their site!) indicate that they are a part of Yahoo! Shopping. The only thing I see Yahoo on is my phony order status page, and I am thinking that they are not legitimately a member of Yahoo--so it is just a further part of their scam--using Yahoo! graphics and a phony Yahoo! url to make themselves appear legit. Sigh.
