I ordered a birth certificate through Vital Check. I requested regular shipping when I completed the form online; however, I was charged for the overnight shipping with a total of $39.50.
I immediately notified Vital Check and received a response. "You will be refunded the full amount of $39.50. Please allow 5-7 business days for it to show in your account." Then I noticed another charge for $23.00 in my checking account. On top of that, I received a bill from the Office of Vital Records, Tennessee Department of Health billing me.
According to the letter, "The total fee to process your request is $15.00.
To avoid delay your request has been processed with the insufficient fee. It will be necessary, however, for you to remit the additional fee to comply with the present law."
