Something smells fishy about www.lr.com

After seeing the cost/quality of the live rock from my lfs and hearing alot about www.lv.com I decided to get the rest of my rock from lr.com


So I go there and choose how much/what I wanted and started entering in my Credit card info. Seems everything is doing fine then it sends me to the paypal site to redo all the billing info!?!

So why would they need my credit card info twice? Once on www.lv.com then again on paypals site??

I know alot of yall have gotton rock from them so I'm asking you if it did this to you too?

I paid through Paypal and didn't have to enter any credit card info. You should just ask them.

Um it shouldnt.

They have it setup to have paypal as the online store if I remember right, they shouldnt be accepting any kind of credit card info on their site since it is like this.

Actually I just looked and they do have credit card info on their website, and they dont even have a security certificate.
Maybe email Zack as this is a big issue.

You really need to tell him to take that credit card info off. He may be sued for it later on, lol (But really, he may be, EX if someones credit info goes missing and gets charged for stuff... Guess who is getting the bill????)

No security certificate, bad thing....

Also note the real addy is http://www.liverocks.com I dont know if you acutally went to www.lr.com but if you did I would say you could have been a victum of one of the worset internet scames around. Praying on those who enter the wrong URL.
