I finally got through after a month of trying and got my monitor shipped back for free. Then they waited another 3 weeks to get back to me after emailing them a couple times. I was fed up with them and told them they had terrible customer service, terrible product and terrible something else. A day later they sent me all my $$ back. :D I bought a 4k monitor with a 4 year square trade warranty this time.
Which 4K monitor did you buy?

I grabbed the Seiki 39" 4k TV from Tiger Direct. For the price it's a steal. The 30hz at 4k res isn't the greatest, but it's ok as long as your not a perfectionist. You can turn v-sync off in games to get higher framerates unless you can't stand a bit of screen tearing/ghosting (which I personally could care less). Actually who am I trying to kid. 4k gaming even at 30hz is simply amazing. Even older games such as Unreal engine games look better on it.
