I certainly don't believe in bad-mouthing anyone or company, etc., but I believe it is only right to inform a friend who is about to purchase a like item that your experience may not have been a good one - so they know what to expect. Word of mouth can be bad for a business that isn't considerate to it's customers and can be really good if it is a customer-oriented business.

Be an organ donor; give your heart to Jesus.
Exercise daily; walk with the Lord.

I truly doubt that it's illegal to charge your credit card at point of purchase, as annoying as it might be. Far too many companies do it for it to be illegal.

I bought something for my knife sharpening system 3 weeks ago and it has still not arrived. When I called they said they are back ordered and would be shipping them out in about 3 more weeks. They have already charged my credit card though. Can they do that?
I know companies that do that. Actually I have a family member that runs a company that does that. It is legal, but not very cool. I would never do that if I owned my own company. And even worse, if you paid for shipping you donít even legally own the product until it is in route. So if they company has the product on backorder. You've paid for it, but they still legally own it. That's pretty messed up. But it's legal.
