Shopping cart trick can lead to death (update)

[ Edited ]

Apparently Tiger Direct is now with Comenity bank and according to Tiger Direct FAQ, they are doing pre-approvals,  aka the Shopping cart trick is possilbe. I decided to give it a try, added a $1700 server to my shopping cart and proceeded to checkout, while waiting for the pop-up, i went too far, the order got placed, and my AMEX is on file apparently, 5 seconds later I got the nice message that my order had been placed ooops, my wife would of killed me if i bought a $1700 computer without even mentioning it to her. I live less than 50 miles from one of there main warehouses, typicaly 3 day shipping is the same speed as over night. The order would of been at my door monday.  I quickly called Tiger Direct and was on hold for 15 minutes, and the order has been canceled, thankfully!!!

 

Crisis averted!!!

 

 

Update:

 

went to look at my AMEX accounts found the card that was used my my  Zync card,  my statement cuts on the 8th, I would of had to get that transfered to another card quickly or i would of been on AMEX's naughty list as well..

The worst case scenario is that you could have just returned it when it came or just refuse delivery.
