    Has anyone purchased anything from strobes n more lately? If so check your credit cards for a $10 charge from a different site. My sister just called to tell me her cc# was used and she traced it back to that purchase. I have purchased stuff from their last year and was going to buy some stuff next week , but I am going to wait to hear back from her after she calls the company and gets the skinny on what happened. Not trying to bash anyone just to for warn people to what happened to my sister

    I have never had any problems with strobesnmore. They are a great bunch of guys. I have bought over $3000 in lights from them for myself and friends.
    By the way, they also beat anyone elses price.

    2 times i ordered from them were both nightmares. im glad i dont have the CC that i used back then. the owner is very shady, i have had a few conversations with him and MANY emails! lets just say, make sure that HE (strobesnmore owner) is alyaws right.

    I've orderd many times from strobes-n-more and found them to be just fine. It seems like a small one guy type operation from my experience but, I was treated fine.

    The last few orders however, I have used another place which beat strobes-n-more on price and service. ( I don't know them other than my orders and they do hard to find stuff too )

    Yeah ... I know maybe a shameless plug but, honestly that's why I noted that I only have a consumer experience to them and NO other contact. Just passing along what I found to be a good contact.

    Just for the hell of it I went back in my records to see if my purchase had been on the up and up from strobes-n-more. I found that I have been charged an additional $10 after I made my one purchase from there. I bought a mini strobe bar from them.

    I would rather pay a higher price or get a different product than be ripped off. 10 bucks doesn't sound like much but it is.

    What if anything are you all doing about this? I guess I am going to the bank to dispute this transaction and you can bet I will NEVER deal with them again and will warn others against it.

    wouldnt it be considered credit card fraud? I wish i had the credit card that i used before and that they charged me. I would be all over this issue. Especially with all the problems louis the owner gave me (part of it was they would not tell me the progress of my order since i was not the card holder and my wife was. so i had to get my wife to call and find out the order info and she is a school teacher and had to stop and do this for me. total BS, im dropping it now because im getting furious again just thinking about it).

    I wonder if they are going through money issues and thought that most people wouldnt notice a small $10 charge to thier account.

    Good luck with the dispute!

    It sounds like its not Strobes n' More that took the $10, sounds like its someone that got peoples credit card #'s and is now nickle and diming there customers. Think about it $10 from a thousand people is a good day at work. I hate crooks and this is what it sounds like to me.

    I ordered from strobes n more a while ago, was very happy. I noticed they probably use a third party for credit card processing with their cart program, it may be these people doing the over billing. Has anyone asked him about it?

    Site was 123 Web Templates.com in Ga. They had a # attached but of course it is too late tonight to call them. I will keep you posted as I will be calling the bank and the company tomorrow.

    Thanks to all for the info.

    It was $10.60 that I was charged and I will be hitting up the bank today. I will also be calling the # I have for the co. that charged me.

    Will update as soon as I have something.

    I did not say anywhere that I had been charged anything other than $10. How did you know the charge was $10.60? I did not post that info anywhere until right now.
