PLM products are oversized items. The prices of our products include the costs of REGULAR SHIPPING to single family residences and commercial locations within the 48 contiguous states. REGULAR SHIPPING means that the item will be delivered by a common carrier to the curbside of your address. The freight company will not take it inside or onto private property. Therefore, the freight company will contact you to schedule a delivery appointment and will recommend that you have help available to move it to its final location. (Special shipping situations are addressed in sections below.)
PLM products are shipped from our warehouses as expediently as possible. Actual shipping dates may vary depending on factors such as the volumes of orders during peak seasons, out-of-stock (“back order”) situations, and the method of customer payments. Shipping dates generally range from 2 to 3 weeks from the date your order is processed. Actual delivery dates to your shipping address generally range from 1 to 10 business days after the shipping date and will vary depending on your geographic location. In most normal circumstances, you may expect your order to arrive within 2 to 3 weeks from the date of your order.

"Zero Tolerance" Fraud Policy
We Actively Pursue and Prosecute Fraud Offenders:
We are grateful that most of our customers are honorable, and saddened that policies such as this are necessary. However, PLM takes each and every case of suspected fraud very seriously. Fraud offenders not only take advantage of online merchants and consumers, but they also abuse a system on which the Internet community depends. Fraud undermines the entire growth of the Internet and computer companies worldwide, and can seriously harm small family businesses. Chargebacks:It is illegal
to misuse the charge back process to take advantage of merchants. If you are a victim of fraud or if you are a perpetrator, be aware that we will actively pursue and prosecute fraud offenders to the fullest extent of the law. Using your credit card to obtain merchandise or services and then claiming (a) you did not authorize such transaction, (b) you have no idea what the charge is for, (c) that merchandise delivered to you was never received, (d) the credit card number was stolen, (e) or any other false claim, constitutes credit card fraud and will be investigated, reported, and finally prosecuted
. DENYING PAYMENT ON YOUR CREDIT CARD FOR DELIVERED MERCHANDISE CONSTITUTES CREDIT CARD FRAUD AND RETAIL THEFT.. SUSPECTED PERPETRATORS MAY BE REPORTED TO LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL AUTHORITIES FOR INTERVIEW AND ARREST; AND MAY RESULT IN LEGAL ACTION AGAINST YOU FOR THE AMOUNT IN DISPUTE, PLUS COURT COSTS AND LEGAL FEES. IN ADDITION, (WHERE APPLICABLE) PERPETRATOR WILL ALSO BE HELD LIABLE FOR THE COST OF PAYING COLLECTION AGENCIES AND/OR LAWYERS, AND/OR DESIGNATED AGENTS ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNATIONAL COLLECTION AGENCIES WITH INDEPENDENT REPRESENTATIVES IN THE UNITED STATES, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA, ASIA, AFRICA, PLUS COSTS FOR ROUND TRIP AIRFARE, HOTEL, FOOD, AND LABOR COSTS FOR THE DESIGNATED AGENT TO APPEAR IN COURT.Credit card fraud is a serious offense and will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent possible. Our Zero Tolerance policy of fighting back each and every case of credit card fraud will cost offenders far more money than the original amount received.
How Can Your Identity be Proven?
In court, the IP address obtained by your Internet service provider under subpoena will verify your identity and exact time you used the system. Your IP address, per example 188.8.131.52, is not your email address. Your ISP's log file history will show exactly what modem and port you logged on through. How Can We Collect?
By credit collection agencies, liens on your property, bank account, and garnishing of wages. This may also result in a report being filed with three major credit reporting agencies once our case is won. We sincerely hope that it will not come to this, but credit card fraud can not and will not be tolerated. PLM is committed to the prevention and prosecution of online credit card fraud. Some of our prevention measures may include:
- > Reporting all fraudulent and charge back purchases to the authorities;
- > Contacting law enforcement officials in your province or state;
- > Issuing a summons through our attorney to your ISP;
- > Card holder address and telephone number verification;
- > IP number tracking and verification;
- > Telephone contact with the card holder;
- > Requirement of signed authorizations;
- > Examination of all orders for red flag fraud indicators;
- > Other unpublished actions as deemed necessary.
If you make a charge and then refuse payment or initiate a charge back, we will pursue you. We regret that, in some cases, these measures may result in inconvenience to legitimate customers. In the rare event that a fraudulent order passes our screening process, we will report the fraud to the appropriate legal authorities and provide those authorities with the necessary information to complete an arrest and effective prosecution. We may report certain fraudulent activities to your Internet Service Provider for action under their Acceptable Use Policies. We may also initiate civil action against you.
Charge Card Policy
