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.
