WoW Credit Card Fraud : Out of fucking control

edited July 2007 in Social Entropy++
Just got hit with over 100 dollars in unauthorized subscription fees from Blizzard entertainment. Called the bank up and cancelled my fucking card only to learn that there were two other charges from Apple.com

I am not looking forward to seeing the final damage of this, I am especially nervous about the purchases from Apple.com, they were made days ago but the actual dollar amount still hasnt shown up on my transactions.


Apparently, thousands of people are getting fucked over like this.

If any of you have WoW accounts and a Visa credit card, or have purchased any NCsoft games as well, I recommend checking your information regularly. Apparently Blizzard AND the Bank both admit that this fraud is booming.

:x It's a very dirty feeling having hundreds of dollars stolen right out of your account and knowing there's nothing you can do. I am filing for fraud but doubt that anyone is going to re-imburse me. I'm also a little disgusted at the fact that all the payments are 'pending' but cannot be stopped.

Anyone else going through this?

    Apparently people are cancelling Blizzard accounts in droves... serves them right.

    I've also read this has something to do with the 'secure with visa' option on some sites. Who knows.

    FUCK BLIZZARD. They're making billions of dollars and couldn't care less about all of this fraud because it's just more money for them. Instead of simply closing the accounts that are taking in all of this fraud money they are like ' YAY GO HACKERS! BUY BUY BUY!' meanwhile they've got their billing support on the phone telling people "I'm very sorry there's nothing we can do."

    MOTHER FUCKERS!!!! *gasp*

    that's odd. I thought you'd be able to stop payments from your own credit card, no matter the account. It also doesn't matter now, since you canceled that card?

    Or are you complaining because they aren't compensating you for it?

    One time I had a WOW account. It was for a couple months. I cancelled it, but not before they tried that shit with me as well.

    Luckily, in the US most banks offer a feature called "fraud protection". Also, just about all credit cards offer this as well. It means that you are not liable for fraudulent charges (so I didn't have to pay shit).

    If you don't have this feature, you probably hate freedom.

    Unfortunately alot of people use debit/credit and the banks aren't calling them in to doublecheck suspicious charges. I think 5 one month subscriptions bought all at once is pretty fucking suspicious...

    Also, you can't stop a charge once it's been made. The payment is in transit and neither side wants to put a halt on it. They basically force you to pay for the loss and file for fraud. Blizzard sent proof that it wasn't my account making the charge so we should be re-imbursed... that doesn't change the fact that they're sitting on hundreds of thousands of stolen dollars and doing nothing to stop it <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" /> What assholes.

    I'm still confused as to how someone else ended up with your card details.

    Unless you're over 40, there really isn't an excuse to fall for phishing.

    Fraud protection means they either watch for suspicious charges,
    or let the charges go through and expect you to catch it yourself then do paperwork and jump through hoops to prove it was fraud.
