I had he same problem. Just registered a complaint with Consumer Affairs.
I also live in California and they shipped my order to Georgia. I freaked when I tracked my package. I was on hold for 62 minutes before I gave up. I called back the next day, was on hols for 25 minutes before someone answered.
I was told it's a sales tax thing. They claim it has to go to Georgia first when shipping to California. What? The worst part is it originally shipped from Baldwin Park, CA about 20 minutes from my house.
Why they couldn't drop ship is still a mystery. I will never ever buy from these folks again.
