I'm with Smerg.... no credit cards for
transactions. If they can't pay by check, then the company [or consumer] probably has $$ problems or they are going to try and screw you.

They don't want to write a check because if it bounces, well you can charge collection fees and try small claims recovery which can amount to 3 times the check value [depends on what your state laws are for bad check writers]. They also can't claim they never authorized the charge like they can with credit cards.
