    In all fairness, they did warn you several weeks ago and gave you the opportunity to opt-out.

    I almost emailed them when I got the notification that they intended to bill for DS9 right before Christmas. :lol:

    But I was afraid I might not be able to get DS9 then.

    I do agree that their original timeline (end of November) was better timed than right before Christmas, especially for people on a tight budget this time of years

    I just got billed for both as well, but I was able to put my Christmas bonus toward it to pay the full load right before the Holiday.

    I know I've already answered but I think what would make me most happy is getting all the ships that were used as other support starfleet ships but not really seen all that often (ships from FC were seen a lot during the domininion war, but ships from TNG were almost never actually seen and TOS there were sketches and even some models but not seen), I'm speeking of coarse of ships like the New Orleans, the Freedom, the Daedelus, the Saladin, the Curry, the Cheyenne, the Intrepid, the Steamrunner, the Sabre etc.

    I forgot about the New Orleans class! Definitely would like a model of that one.

    Wow. Ok. So, after sending an email last Friday, I got an a response back saying that again they didn't have my billing info on file. Called yesterday and talked with a really helpful young lady. This time she made sure that my info was saved into the system. I should now be getting issues 5 thru 8 and DS9 in two weeks.

    I tried to subscribe to this, only to have their billing system tell me my address is nonexistent. Received a support e-mail from someone named Rajish Rupaldi who asked for my full (unredacted) credit card number and my SSN so he could 'urgently process manual transaction.' I told him just to forget about it. There's definitely some shenanigans happening in their billing department which my financial info doesn't need to be a part of.

    That does not seem kosher. Have you tried calling them?

    Has someone cloned Eagle Moss's website and is using it to dupe people perhaps?

    I have NEVER heard of a SSN being asked for to complete a purchase of a product before- definitely something is going on.

    "Rajish Rupaldi" doesn't sound very British to me.

    Email: startrek-ships@eaglemoss-service.com

    I've conversed with them at this email address and it's legit.

    ^^^ Sounds Indian. Indians make up a rather large portion of the demographic in the UK. I suppose it's a hold-over from England's colonial period over a century ago. So much so that curry is threatening fish & chips as the national food of the UK. I remember, when visiting there 10 years ago, you couldn't swing a dead cat without finding some kind of chicken curry sandwich at a local deli or convenience store. I suppose it's a lot like chicken salad sandwiches here in the states, but I personally prefer curry and wish it was more prevalent over here.

    So, long and short of it, if it's an Indian sounding name at a UK company, that is certainly not an indication of skullduggery. Asking for a SSN, however, is not a good thing. I recently had to change my credit card info with them because of the Target hack fiasco and, while it took a while for me to reach someone, they were very courteous once I did talk to someone, and they absolutely never asked for an SSN - not once. I personally would not have given that information out under any circumstances.

    "skullduggery" :lol: I should have used a "sarcastic" emote.

    With ya on the SSN thing. That's a big red flag there.
