Address verification is a precautionary measure we take to ensure your safety and prevent fraud. Phone and online shopping does not allow us to request traditional forms of identification, e.g. a driver's license, like a standard walk-in retail outlet. Instead we conduct address verification through our merchant services and/or your credit/debit card issuer to confirm your identity and verify the validity of your purchase, thereby ultimately protecting your credit. Orders with different Bill to and Ship to addresses may experience delayed processing, dependent upon the amount of time required to verify the validity of information provided.
Both your billing and shipping addresses are verified before an order ships. If you would like to ship to an address other than your billing address, it is best to contact your card issuing bank and have your shipping address added as an alternate shipping address to your card. Simply let the card issuer know that you are placing a phone/online order and the retailer needs to verify the address before shipment to eliminate the possibility of fraudulent activity
Orders with the same billing and shipping address or an alternate shipping address recognized by the card issuer will ship the quickest.
In addition to address verification, Creative Sign Solutions, Inc. may require customers to fill out a Credit Card Authorization (CCA) form prior to approval of any online order. The CCA includes a blanket option, for your convenience, if you know you will be placing additional orders in the future. A CCA is required for all customers interested in maintaining a credit card on file with Creative Sign Solutions, Inc. for future purchases.
During our verification process, we may contact you via telephone, email or direct mail. We may also contact the credit card company, issuing bank or obtain additional information from third-party sources. If the information provided does not coincide with information on file, if you do not respond to our emails or phone messages regarding pending order, or there is reason to believe that the card is being used fraudulently, we will cancel the order immediately and request that your order be resubmitted using verifiable information.
If you have reason to believe that your card may have been used fraudulently for purchase of merchandise from Creative Sign Solutions, Inc., please contact us directly and we will work with you to verify the validity of a charge and if necessary, assist in the process of reporting fraud to your Credit Card issuer.
If it is determined that customer information is being used fraudulently, we will cooperate to the fullest extent possible with law enforcement agencies in support of the identification and prosecution of those engaged in criminal activity.
