I follow the 20 complainants shown on your website that have been ripped off by Mercantila. I ordered a Schwinn 150 Exercise Bike from them by e-mail; paid by credit card; then found one $100 cheaper so immediately contacted them and cancelled the order. I noted that they had immediately cashed the money.
Since then I have been unable to retrieve my money as they fob me off at each e-mail. Here is my email trail to them so far, together with their replies (I included your webpage showing your 20 other complainants)

THIS HAS GONE BEYOND A JOKE. I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU SAY YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR E-MAIL RESPONSES BUTTHERE HAS BEEN NO ACTION FROM THE BANK WHICH SEEMS CONSISTENT WITH ALL BANKS TODAY. QUICK ENOUGH TO CASH IN THE MONEY > VERY SLOW TO RETURN IT. WORLD NEWS IS RIFE WITH THIS BEHAVIOR THE BEHAVIOR OF THIEVES OR INVESTING THE MONEY WHILE FOBBING OFF THE CREDITOR.I AM NOW SEEKING ADVICE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS MATTER.I WILL CERTAINLY BE ADVISING THE APPROPRIATE INTERNET COMPLAINT SITES ABOUT MERCANTILA AS FRAUDSTERS. ZOOSTORES' NAME MAY INADVERTENTLY BECOME BESMIRCHED BY ASSOCIATION
