Update: I have sent buyblackline a final email stating that I am canceling my order and that I want my refund processed ASAP. Also notified bank that the charge is fraudulent.

Additionally, I decided to do a little scooby doo detective work (anything to get out of the mystery van and away from Daphne's incessant yapping - zoinks!). I found the following location information based on the website registrar records.

I called the 1.4806242599 number but it was "securenet" hosting company and not the actual admin office of blackline. The physical location noted here is a company called Domains By Proxy, LLC. The number noted on my bank transaction is 480-257-5172 but rolls over to a non-descript voicemail. The bank info also says AVTEK which may be the company name on file with their credit card processor/service. I will keep digging to find out who this mystery knob dealer is. C'mon Scoob.

Quick search of AVTEK in AZ yields the following:

Avtek Industries Inc
2219 E Rose Garden Loop
Phoenix, AZ 85024 - View Map
Phone: (602) 485-4005

I called the number and spoke to an Alicia who indicated that they are a machine shop but stated they had no affiliation with buyblackline. (Possible that they are in fact the source of these knobs? Am envisioning that the machine shop is the one who decided "hey we can make these ARC replica knobs and make some good coin" Strictly speculation/theory at this point but plausible.

Also discovered that the 480-257-5172 is registered to a company called Ymax Communications. As you can see from their website (Here: http://www.ymaxcorp.com/) the guy who founded this company was the orgiantor of the magicjack. At this point I am assuming that the proprietor of buyblackline registered a magicjack phone number with his credit card processor so as to obfuscate their identity.

the vast majority of car parts websites are resellers that are just a website and a laptop. Most import car parts come from 2 suppliers, and most JDM comes from one. The rest are wholesale resellers.

Brandon, just found this thread. Sorry again for all the trouble, the knobs can be on backorder 3-4 weeks sometimes before they ship. Unfortunately I have no control over that, and apologize again for the delay you experienced. Thanks.

I ordered a shift knob through buyblackline.com roughly a year ago. While it did take a few weeks I received my knob and never thought I was getting scammed at any point. On a side note I have no affiliation to the company or the owner just figured I'd share my purchasing experience from them.

We have shipped out over 1000 shift knobs since we started, and nobody has ever returned a shift knob (other than one instance where the insert was damaged). Yes, sometimes they take a long time to come in and ship if they are on backorder, but when they are in stock and ready to go, they usually ship within 1-2 days.

Warning - if anyone is reading this in 2017 or later, do not deal with this "company" buyblackline. They have had my money for 2 weeks and have not shipped out any product or offered a refund. They are not to be trusted even if their website appears to up and running.
