Description WARNING: NORTHERN TOOL & EQUIPMENT If any of you have purchased tools or equipment (towing, etc), beware that this company will double dip on your credit card or PayPal account. A review of this company, shows a pattern of second and even third billing for items long paid for. We ordered tow lights (which to makes matters worse are defective and came a week late after paying expedited shipping) whereas, I was notified by my Credit Card Company (last night) that this company NORTHERN TOOL had submitted a charge to Capital One (2 random charges) for the same purchase paid for months earlier. My investigation revealed that this company has a long history of the very same fraudulent conduct. This is no glitch, this took a person to actually submit the charge, knowing it to be a bogus charge. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY, THEIR ENTIRE OPERATION IS BUILT UPON FRAUD. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.

Northern Tool appears to be "double dipping" as indicated. I was charged 19.48 for one item TWICE! Very unscrupulous!

I place an order online with Northern Tool 11-3-2018. I used PayPal which is linked to my credit card to pay for this order. As soon as I hit the order button, I get the usual alert from my credit card that a charge was made, It showed up as CATALOGCOMP. Now fast forward to 11-15-2018, at 10:30pm I get an alert that my card was charged, knowing I had not used it that day, I started looking, it said charge was from CATALOGCOMP(of course I had forgotten than name by now) so I called my credit card company, the first rep did not know who that was, so they transfered me to the security department, which they invistigated and also could not find out who it was, so in turn, they said it was fraud and shut my card off. The next day(11-16-18) I called PayPal and checked the transaction in my account, everything is listed as Northern Tool. When I called to talk to Northern Tool, the phone rep said, no, we are Northern Tool. So I emailed and got a little different reply, Northern Tool customer service email claims PayPal list them as CATALOGCOMP. Now the 1st charge that was done on 11-3, was never actually taken from the account, I suppose that is just a test to see if the card is valid and has enough funds to fill the order. On the 15th, when the item was shipped, they billed, which many people may take this as double billing. I have contacted Northern Tool requesting they have the name changed to stop all of this confusion. In the mean time, I will no longer order and have my card shut off!
