Actually, I want this piece of hardware because it would look really cool in place of the coin holder...

But thank you for the much more economical alternative...

My guess is that it would be cheaper than the setup you linked to plus the OBD2 connection would be wireless and you can fully customize the display (plus it supports multiple displays that you can flip through). Torque also has the ability to perform code scans.

That is true. Visa/Mastercard/Amex also will have no problem taking away your merchant account if you violate their policies.

Read your merchant agreement. You received it when you opened your account(s).

You are in no way liable for the charge is the card is fraudulent. That's on the CC company.

And if I confirm it is a fraud charge they cancel the card as a normal matter of procedure. The only thing that is really ever up for discussion is whether I want the new one by standard mail or I want to pay 16 bucks to expedite it. I have actually gotten into the habit of giving both companies a heads up when I go out of town so my card doesn't get cancelled on me. I think there must be some formula they use to raise red flags based on zip code. If I am in the next state over it doesn't happened but if my card is used one day close to home and the next day at a brick and mortar store across the country they freeze it.
I received a text today from a Visa card I never use after they declined a $500 charge at the GAP. I called to verify it was fraud and found out I paid for some f**khead's day at an amusement park near L.A. last weekend. They canceled the card and put a new one in the mail.

Correct, you'll need the new card for 6.2L performance parts.

I had to stop using credit cards when flying out of Philly International. 2 times in a row I used it for small stuff like food and coffee while I was waiting for a flight. Then while I was away they would call and tell me it was stolen. The first time it was used to buy a few hundred bucks worth of merchandise at the airport Brookstone. The second time it was used online right after I flew out. I believe there is a ring operating out of the airport involving clerks at all the shops. They get a number and either use it to make a purchase at some other airport shop worked by someone they know who will simply enter the number manually from a receipt, or else they give it away to someone who will try to use it elsewhere.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

So today i shipped back the espresso machine, shipped back the flasher module, and also received the bacpac touch lcd panel for the go pro. Thankfully, the touch lcd panel works like it should.
Now hopefully i'll get my $$ refunded ASAP so i can buy other stuff for the tundra!

Re: Got FKED by ebay user!

Make sure you put your tracking number in the case you opened or the buyer doesnt have to refund you anything. I am a very large seller on ebay and know exactly how it all works.

Dragos, I'm with you on the ID thing. We have had several charge-backs because the person using the card was not the owner. We lose the money.

I have to tell you about one particular SOB. He bought a part with his CC after I spent about 30 minutes explaining how the part works.

About a month later he brings it back stuffed into the torn box saying he never used it and wanted his money back.

I said OK, with a restocking fee for the damaged box. He said no way, he wants all the money back.

So long story short, he takes the item saying he will just keep it. Two days later the money is taken from my account after he filed a dispute. The card company says that as far as they are concerned, the deal is done. It's on me to try and get money or the item back from him.

Wow... they really shafted you!
I know we can deduct it on our taxes... but still, that is money that we worked hard to earn and to invest, and our time that is lost..
The worst part is that its not even worth going to court over... in the end the merchant get the short end of the stick... It would be ok if the merchant is the one being unethical, but sometimes its the customer.
Do you have surveillance cameras? I have A LOT of them and they mostly serve the purpose of being a witness, no one really steals fabric but they do try other funny stuff.. the problem we face the most is that customers ask for a fabric cut & then change their mind.. well, that fabric is now cut & is going in the remnant bin, and the time that they took from my employee.... I usually refuse to sell anything at all to people like that and ask them to leave...

Re: Got FKED by ebay user!

I've never had a problem before, now I've had 2 different cc numbers stolen this week. I sold some sh!t to a guy on TS last Friday night and he sent payment right away via PayPal. I've been trying to get ahold of him ever since for shipping info with no response whatsoever. The fraud started last Saturday. I don't know if he hacked my PayPal or not, but it is definitely suspicious. Luckily both cards declined the charges (except for a $160 amusement park trip) and contacted me immediately so all I had to do was cancel them and get new cards.
