Default 42 Percent - is it a fraud company?

Is there anyone else that have had problem with 42 Percent.com and Ken Anderson?

The September 17'th 2009 I made an order of products for 1058 USD from 42 percent.com. The payment was done by sending my Credit Card information to Ken Anderson who withdraw 1173 USD from my Credit Card! No products was shipped out. I wrote several E-mails asking what the problem was. The following is the E-mails we have sent so far:

Ok so this is the card that is on file for orders then?
Ok I am dropping this box today wanted to be sure I had the right info first

Did we still need to run the card?

So we just didn’t charge Shipping fee.
If you think we did let me know because that may be a bit because it’s a Box of stuff.

Hi Ken,
I have been charged 1173,5 USD. The order sum is 1058,05 USD.
So you have charged 115,45 USD to much or as I think - shipping, which could move quite big objects around the world.
Best Regards
Ove

Hi Ken,
How is my paid order progressing? I hate to have to remind over and over. Do you not think it’s about time to send the products I have paid for – or send back the payment?
I actually thought 42-percent was a serious company. You’ll have to proof me wrong.
Regards
Ove

Hi Ken,
What are you doing?
You did charge my card September 19. 1173,5 USD
No you did another charge of 169 USD the 24’th March 2010.
I would appreciate if you would send me the products instead of charging already prepaid orders.

We had to have a marker for the shipping the amount will be refunded once it reaches you .
It is just a marker for the shipper to get the package to you once it is there we will refund the amount .

Hi Ken,
Any news regarding the shipment?
What is the problem? If you have the ordered and twice paid products in stock – just send it! Why miscredit your brand and company by stealing customers money? I’m not a bank – so please refund the 169 USD immediately! I don’t give a damn about your business system – so far you have stolen the prepaid 169 USD and the original 117,5 USD as long as no products delivered!
It feels like a fraud – and that is really bad when customers have those thoughts about a company.

Hi Ken,
How is things going?
I must say I’m very very very disappointed.
What is the problem?
Do not have the products in stock?
If you do not send the products within next week I want you to refund ALL the payment you have stolen from me.

Ken,
Sorry to say, but my English is not god enough to understand what you are writing to me.
It does not make sense.
You could answer YES or NO of the following questions:
- Will you immediately send the products I have made an order of more than six month ago?
- Will you refund the 169 USD you double charged the order?
- If you not intent to send the products, will you refund all my payment immediately?

I can't figure out what Ken Anderson answers me. Could anyone please help me to translate?

One thing is certain - I have been dealing with a fraud company. I surely hope that Ken Anderson and 42 percent.com is an sad excemption from the American way of doing business.
