Delinquent Hold Files and Closing Your File

If you have not purchased any items in 30 days we will try to contact you. If we are unable to reach you, we may put items in your file out for sale and may suspend your file. (We'll keep a list of what was in your file in case you want to re-start your file.) Next, we will attempt to contact you 2 more times and, if we are unable to reach you, we will close your Hold File.

For pre-ordered special items, like toys, action figures, shirts and posters: we will attempt to contact you twice within 30 days of the item's arrival. If we do not hear from you we will put the item out for sale.
