    I suggest you call your credit card co. and cancel that card ASAP, give all the infor that you know about the company and ask for a new card to be issued. Some lessons are expensive to learn, I hope you don't suffer that fate.

    actually, they are a legitimate company. i've heard of them before, but not here in florida. i looked them up under florida's ce broker website and they are listed there as board-certified. the info below was copied from the ce broker website. since you paid your money and you're not getting any action from them you should call the bon and file a complaint.
