Over the weekend I ordered a new 20" Apple ADC (previous model) Cinema Display from Memory Solutions for $899 with free ground shipping. Used their web site and because it was the weekend, and a holiday, wasn't surprised that I didn't hear from them regarding my order till today. That's where things get a little strange to me....maybe I'm being anal. I got an email from Mac Solutions asking me to fill out and fax to them a credit card approval form. On it they ask for my account #, exp. date, security code and to top it off they ask that I photo copy the front and back of my credit card and fax them the whole shebang. WTF? Now remember I ordered from Memory Solutions....I got this email from Mac Solutions. The phone numbers don't match up but calls to both result in my being dumped into a customer service voice mail asking for my name and phone number....they'll call back. Well two hours later they haven't called.
Has anyone dealt with this/these companies? Is it legit to ask me to fax them this info? Am I being overprotective of my credit card account?
Your thoughts PLEASE!
Thanks
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Even though no one chimed in I thought I'd post an update. I cancelled the order with Memory/Mac Solutions and bought a new Aluminum 20" from the Apple Store for the same price with my edu discount. Things sometimes have a way of taking care of themselves...I'm happy Apple dropped the prices when they did.
I still don't know what to think about the other company.
