doesn't your cedit card company have a fraud option to get your money back?

they obviously have no right to take money from you 2 times if you pressed the button only 1 time.

as a last resort, i would inform myself about any options there.


i am sure Brandon will swoop in any moment and tell you the proper channels to get in contact with Billing Support and put a red !!! on it internally...

Has it occurred to you to block the transaction with the CC company or your bank!?!??! DURRRRRRR

or at least dispute it.

the pending charge usually disappears after a few days.
i wouldn't worry about it unless its been a week or so.

cowkiller75 10-03-2012 04:25 AM

we will see if it gos away...
as for brandon i'm sure he will come in and say go with proper channels..... but there is no phone number now... the old one is changed to a company... and the stuff on the bill support is very very very minamul at best. which is sad.

as it has occurred to me to disputed it. but since this is a place i do bisness with alot i would hope they would make it right. if there is no response in 2 days i will dispute it.

not hard to find on google, if it's out of date go to the financial register, you'll ffind it there with a lot of other public domain information pertaining to PWI/PWE.

However as stated it will probably disappear, if not go back to your CC company and tell them it's a mistake and they will refund you and take it up themselves with Cryptic.

Where are you from?

In my instance, if I were to buy 50$ of zen, the following math applies):

(((50$ * 6,5[ConversionRate])+1,2%[TransferPrice])+25%[VAT]) = 63,25 USD.

Sometimes conversion rates and taxes and all that can get pretty messy and make insane results.

i just didnt want to take it up with my credit card yet...... when i dispute it they will lock that merchant from my card. so i wont be able to buy goods there again... atleast thats what has happen in the past... thanks for the link.

A lot of services will ban your account if you dispute a charge on them. It's usually automated, and it can be a pain if not impossible getting your account back. If the pending charge doesn't disappear it'd be best to exhaust your options beating your head against PWE or Cryptic "support" first.

If you are still seeing a pending charge, but the $50 has also hard posted to your account, your bank may be in the process of dropping the pending charge. I would not be too concerned unless that pending charge hard posts as well. If it does, reach out to our billing team (support.perfectworld.com or customerservice@perfectworld.com) and they'll be able to investigate.

Cheers,
