So uhm this is unreal; wanted to switch to EU today but I can't even pay them with my card for premium.
 
A phone call to the bank revealed that they are now blocked and this because of a lot of payments being reversed by customers (suddenly), when I kept asking to unblock it they explained it was based on a digital fraud claim and expressed to be cautious,etc. Etc... un-[edited]-real!?!
 
My best guess would be that this is related to the PMM vehicles being changed?
I guess they did not expect this.
 
So how much did you reverse?

I guess the backcharging has started over the PMM.....it'll be a costly business for the banks and WG. Each individual backcharge costs approx £25 in the UK and higher in other countries on top of each refund.

I blame Tr0ledyte. :hiding:

Well, one of these terrible decisions was bound to backfire in WG's face eventually.

So wait, this also fits in nicely with the upcoming EULA change discussion?
 
That is pretty deep.

My best guess is that you are a fantasist.

they explained it was based on a digital fraud claim

Should of asked them to elaborate on what they meant by digital fraud claim , can anyone else elaborate on this because I would not of thought it would be anything to do with the PMM vehicles being changed .

Remember seeing on the UK news a couple of days ago about a major system breakdown with Visa, with thousands of payments not going through. May be related? Don't use Visa myself, so can't say more than that.  :sceptic:

well first of:

is this a topic for the newcomers forum?

 

on the card fraud thing:

I doubt it's players booking their money back, cause if they do, their accounts will be locked.

Might be you'll be able to give prem time back or gold assuming you still have it, but you'll be in a whole lot of trouble with WG.

So I'd rather thing someone is having fun with the banks booking money back and forth with the help of credit cards that are not his own.

yeah, that may have been genuine... as opposed to this alt account opportunist.

The bit highlighted in bold is the important words.

 

It's always been an issue. Read here for example.So maybe your bank got too many of these and put a block on all WG related payments.

Could be. But it's not the first time we have seen this either. There was a fraud here not that long ago where gifts were sent to players. They accepted and then the others pulled the payment back. The recipient then got his account banned until he paid, causing issues for the banks even. Made some banks really paranoid every time they see "WG". And I suspect some still are. So it's not the first time we have seen waves of this. As in from players that have not pulled the payment themselves. But get their payment flagged by the bank instantly due to past issues.

Can't you use one of those pre-paid voucher credit cards that poor people use?
