For now I shall refrain from naming the company, but this is my story so far.
I ordered a webcam from Company X on March 16. Delivery ETA late March, latest.
March 27 I am duly advised that my order is a non-essential item and cannot be shipped until after level 4 is lifted.
Now though webcams are considered essential, but instead of shipping my order, Company X has been pushing the delivery date further and further out. A few days ago it was April 29, now it's May 7.
My order is still in place, and my credit card has not yet been charged.
I have noticed that the price of said webcam, and indeed webcams in general, has gone up quite a bit since I placed my order.
Now I am wondering if they are trying to constructively cancel my order, so they can resell the webcam at a higher price to someone else.
Or has isolation made me paranoid?
