Unhappy Car Parts Discount

I ordered a replacement turn-signal switch for my E320 MB from online store Car Parts Discount because their price was the best. However, they cancelled my order because the shipping address was different than the card billing address. When I called to check they approved it and carelessly opened a new order.

I ended up being charged for two pieces and two international shipping charges (not cheap!). I can't return it because the courier charge costs more than the part.

I spoke with them, sent them a complete log of my emails, to no avail.

I feel taken and ripped off.

I just want to make MB owners aware of Car Parts Discount and their unethical business practice.

Kajtek1 is right, just dispute the duplicate charge with your credit card company. At least in the US this is what we would do.

I'm in Colombia but the card I used is issued by a US bank. Thanks for your advise. I hadn't thought of that.
