No longer am I sending COD for over $5,000 and also I would need a faxed copy of the Cahier's check before the item is shipped. TOO many stolen documents and fraud out there....

Right, Mr wiggles,
That was my main point (about charging and accepting the charge under the premise that they were actually covering it). While you make a good analogy about the gambling, it doesn't quite fit the profile of this situation, because (at least in my simple mind) we've requested a service, they appear to have accepted said request in exchange for legal tender, then refused said protection in the event of actual occurrance that the protection was intended to cover, and only then made it obvious that it was never intended to be covered in the 1st place. This, to me, is simply fraudulent. It's like if I bought insurance to cover my body on a vacation, had an arm get chopped off during the vacation, THEN find out that arms, legs, butts, and any other body parts are not covered, when that was the coverage I had specifically asked for in the 1st place!
