Hello,

I need a little help with country codes.

I purchased some items from www.dvd.it. They are difficult to communicate with. I would have cancelled my order, but they have already billed me.

They requested that I fax them a copy of my identification to 039xxxxxxx. I did this and I received a confirmation that my fax was sent successfully. However, my e-fax software added a "39" to the start of the number (code for Italy), so fax was sent to 39039xxxxxxx.

When I did a google search, this fax number comes back as belonging to www.factotus.it. Could this be part of the same company?

Should I remove the "039" and resend this to xxxxxxx and let the software add the 39 to the beginning (39xxxxxxx) or are 39039xxxxxxx and 039xxxxxxx the same thing??

39039 Jul 6, 2006

Hi,
It's ok to have a number starting with 39-039.
39 is the code for Italy, while 039 is the area code for Macherio, a small town outside Milan where the dvd.it company appears to be located.
In other words, nothing is wrong with a fax number starting with 39039.

Laura

Yes, factotus.it and dvd.it both belong to the Shop.it network.

As for the rest, I agree with Laura
