I did some research on this and the reason is quite simple. It was an error on my part as I simply used a quick zip code search for a shipping quote for someone that lives in the same area. When I did this, your account showed first as your last name appears first in the database due to "A". After switching screens I found the order still "pending" and could not remember if it was in fact a legitimate order. This prompted the automated system to generate an email to you but there was no payment on it as we do not store credit cards for security reasons, this is why it was automatically flagged COD.
I apologize for any confusion and have will attempt to adopt different protocol in regards to shortcuts in the system. I hope this makes sense to you.
