I asked for pictures development at fotokasten.com by sending a CD to
them.

I paid with a Visa Card, and before sending the CD, I ask some
questions:

* the first email is invalid
* the second doesn't respond
* unable to call them from outside Germany
* the money is taken from my account, even if their FAQ says:

They said:

* Money is taken from your account 3 days after the pictures are sent
from out laboratory.

It was not true in my case since they charged me before receiving my
CD (and I never sent my CD because them didn't answer my emails).

At the end, I had to get the transfer cancelled from my bank.

----
From their Website (german):

Wann muss ich bezahlen?

Wenn Sie das Bankeinzugsverfahren wählen ziehen wir den
Rechnungsbetrag 3 Tage nachdem wir Ihre Ware versendet haben von Ihrem
Konto ein. Bei der Zahlung mit Kreditkarte reservieren wir den
Rechnungsbetrag auf Ihrer Kreditkarte während der Bestellung und
belasten Ihre Karte sobald wir die Ware an Sie versendet haben. Bei
der Zahlung per Nachnahme kassiert wie üblich der Postbote die
Rechnungssumme von Ihnen.

Bad for you,
I have good experiances by fotokasten.
* I emailed and the mail is valid
* asked (by e-mail) to change an order by a mistake by my actions
* got a nice e-mail they can not change but they deleted the order
(storno), wrote that I had to send the order again, what I did.
Some days later I got my pictures as send the second time.

Stupid to pay before any sending.

So you got back your money, what is the case now?

Sorry to hear that. They have been recommended to me by a professional
photographer and I was thinking of doing business with them. They offer
professional quality prints with colours lasting 70 years in a variety
of sizes. So far they have responded to all my (enquiry) emails.
