I've been trying not to buy things from Amazon for the last couple years but OH my GOD does literally no one else know how online shopping works?

Ace Hardware placed 3 holds on my credit card... and insisted the transaction failed every time.

Sears (or someone committing identity fraud, who knows!) just CALLED me a day after an online order and insisted that I recite every detail of the order, billing, shipping, etc to them, ma'am it's a belt sander, not a diamond
