$4,000+ dispute over a purchase in Israel

My dear husband purchased 3 necklaces as gifts for our daughters in law and me. He understood the price to be about $450. What we were charged was 10 times that amount. Daily Audio Bible staff (Mike) and the tour company, Morning Star Tours have been working to reach a reasonable settlement of this dispute. Today we heard from Mike, DAB that the store owner is not backing down, nor adjusting the four thousand dollar price. Therefore we will be returning the necklaces. Please pray that the final details can get worked out smoothly, that the necklaces get returned to the store owner, and that we receive the $450 we already paid towards this purchase.pattysyellowbusPrayers: 607Requests: 10

If you used a credit card it should be easy to reverse the charges I think.
Father in Heaven I pray in agreement with gsimonin and ask for Your favor in the settlement of this dispute. I pray for the safe return of both the money already spent and the necklaces purchased in Israel in Jesus name.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Thank you for those prayers. We are at peace, eventhough it was not the answer we expected or wanted. We have placed this in the Lord’s hands and know all will be well – sababa.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Continued prayers needed: We have decided to return the necklaces, which previously, the owner said he would accept. Now – we need detailed information on where to send them, and how. Please pray for these details. We want to bring this issue to an amicable conclusion. Thank you!gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Still waiting on receiving information on how and where to return the necklaces. Based on a signed credit card receipt, our credit card has been re-charged the $4k+. We cannot afford this expense.sheila.tolsonPrayers: 2344Requests: 23

are you telling me in addition to the ORIGINAL $4000 you have been charged an additional $4000???
Please help me understand..gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Hello Sheila – No, not an additional $4,000. This is the original 4k that our credit card company had removed from our statement, and now has placed back on our account. I don’t know how we are going to pay it. Pray! My dear husband will be calling them this morning to ask they remove the charge once again since we are waiting for the shop owner to provide us with the detailed information about returning the necklaces. We really don’t want to pay this amount and then try to get it back, and, we don’t want to incur interest charges. That’s just extra money out of our pocket that will never get replaced.sheila.tolsonPrayers: 2344Requests: 23

That uncalled for Debt will be cancelled in Jesus name ( this is the agenda of the enemy to attack your finanes). Have your husband speak with them . The credit company MUST protect its customers by all means. I have heard credit card theives hack my debit card not sure how!!! so i saw a charge of $48 which is not much .. but still means account compromised.. so i called the bank .. they reversed then a few weeks later they put the charge back and i was upset. So when i called them they said they had been trying to call me for me to validate that did not authorize the charges, so after speaking with them they reversed.
Your husband and you have AUTHORITY as children of God. The enemy shall NOT put HOLES in your pockets.
Please let me know the outcome.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Here is what has come to light: my dear husband signed a credit charge slip that was for the $4,653.00. He said he was in a hurry, didn’t notice the error at the time. Now that we’re home, there is no way for us to physically go back to the shop to return the items.
The shop owner said a month ago that he would accept the items in return, however, we still do not know where to ship them. Pray that this detail can be clarified this week.
Enemy of our souls, you have no authority over our finances. Every dollar we have and every thing we have is from our Lord and Savior. Get away from us, His servants and managers. I pray resolution to this problem, this week.felixculpa723Prayers: 655Requests: 3

Heavenly Father, I praise you that we do not always understand what you are doing in our lives but that we still put our trust fully in you. I stand with this couple before your throne of grace and mercy, trusting you fully for the outcome. You are our Provider, and we now must look to you alone to resolve this dispute. It goes without saying that we are wholly at your mercy, dear Father. I pray that you give your servants peace about the outcome of this transaction. I pray that this incident not be used by the enemy to disrupt the harmony of this home or family. I pray that the evil one be bound from any power over this home, this couple or this transaction. The transaction under dispute is fully and unreservedly submitted to you as the judge and source of our resources. We join as a community asking for a just outcome of this dispute that your witness in our lives be fully glorified.sheila.tolsonPrayers: 2344Requests: 23

Praise! At my dear husband’s request, once again our credit card company has temporarily removed this charge from our account because we are working on returning these items. But – they won’t keep it off indefinitely. We must get these items returned.
Praise God yesterday I noticed an Israeli Post Office Box address for this vendor. My dear husband does not want to send such valuable items to a PO Box. Lord, we need some of Your wisdom in this regard. We stand and wait upon You. Speak, we are listening.sheila.tolsonPrayers: 2344Requests: 23
May 9, 2019 at 11:26 am
You CANNOT use Post office. Please use reliable means like DHL /UPS which is secure and you can track. It will cost you over $120 …..is that not worth it rather than you use Post office worth $50 and lose the items or delayed delivery? so yes please go with a RELIABLE service .. It’s not that I don’t trust the post office but DHL will literally hand deliver , its faster . Be sure to give clear instructions to the DHL or UPS whichever you choose. Pray over that parcel by laying hands on it. Fast if you can as this is an attack on your finances.
You will come out victorious if you do what the Lord instructs you. No procrastination please

Heavenly Father, you are concerned over every detail of our lives. I pray that you will reveal the appropriate method of returning this jewelry to the merchant in Israel. I pray that your wisdom will penetrate the godly counsel this couple is receiving, and that you will show them the answer to this question about shipping.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Praise: We received a direct email from the shop owner who told us that he would give us instructions THIS WEEK about returning the items.
We agree: we do not want to risk sending these items to a PO Box, and we will send them insured, and request a signature receipt for the hand delivery. Whatever the cost, it will be worth it.
Pray: that the shop owner follows through on his promise.
Pray: that the items will be safely delivered to the proper location
Pray: that the shop owner will acknowledge via writing receipt of the necklaces
Pray: that the shop owner will refund our $465.30 payment we already paid to him
Pray: the shop owner will release the $4,653.00 charge from our credit card
Pray: for unity and peace in our hearts, in his, as well as the Daily Audio Bible and Morningstar Tours staff who were trying to assist us
So many details for an honest mistakesheila.tolsonPrayers: 2344Requests: 23

Father in the name of Jesus ,
I pray that you will TOUCH this seller and cause him to keep his word, provide the right shipping location , provide signature once he receives the items and credit back the ENTIRE charge of $4653.00 back to Gail and her husband’s credit card.
Lord heal the hearts of ALL the parties involved. The travel to Israel was to be a great memorable event but the enemy has tried to bring heartache , so we ask Lord that you heal the wounded hearts and make this as a lesson learned for all of us to be VIGILANT at all times being that we live in evil days.
Lord I pray for safe delivery of the package and TRUST that you will have special ANGELS assigned to watch over that package.
I TRUST you and know that you will make a WAY.
In Jesus name I pray

Yes Lord, and I ask that You will bring a special blessing to my dear husband who, with this purchase, wanted to give something nice to me and each of our daughters in laws. Now, his selection must be returned and he has nothing to give. I’m okay and our DILs don’t even know about all this. But my dear husband knows and I think in some way his heart is hurt.
We know Lord, that when You make a way, it cannot be altered. So we ask that You make a way for this package to be returned, credit given and the ability to move forward for everyone.felixculpa723Prayers: 655Requests: 3

Today Lord, move the shop owner to contact us with specific instructions for the return of these necklaces. Also, move him to give us full credit on our credit card.
I stand against the attacks of the enemy and his desire to sully the memory of our trip to Israel, standing not in my own power, but in the power and the precious blood of Jesus. Lord, do not let any of Your Israel blessings depart from our hearts and minds. Keep us ever near You, in humility and graciousness.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Update: Last week the shop owner promised to send us detailed information on how and where to return these disputed items. He did not do so.
So, today Father, I pray that Your Holy Spirit would move in his heart and mind to provide these details to us, that they be accurate, that he keep his word in allowing us to return them for full credit. I pray that he provides this information THIS WEEK.gsimoninPrayers: 1645Requests: 14

Since their is clearly no cooperation from the seller, the credit company should do EVERYTHING in its power to PROTECT you as the customer.
At this point Gail, I suggest you deal directly with the credit company.
I had a case where someone sold me an item from China.. it came broken.. I called Paypal and they immediately credited the account and since the person who sold me the item was not cooperating Paypal took it UPON THEMSELVES to resolve the issue.
As the customer you should not have to go through all this stress. The Credit company has insurance to back it up , so this should not even be an issue , so please use your rights as a child of God.
