Suspect these people of being Keyloggers. Why? They require you to open the email they sent you, if you open it you are likely downloading the keylogger virus. To make sure you do this, they require you to reply to it.

Next, they require you to recieve a "code" sent to your phone. I believe they do this to infiltrate the advanced security established by Blizzard (the maker of WoW, who sends you a text with a code that you have to have to log into WoW, an added security feature) that way they can steal your code and log into your account and destroy everything you have. People really do this, and I think these are the ones who do it. Makes sense to me.

I want to show you what they did to me. I caught on REAL fast, I was weary of this website the instant I clicked the link.

You are now chatting with 'carries'

Me: Hello I am only wondering if the deliverer can place the gold I purhase, which will be 10k, in the Bank. I would feel much safer if you were able to do this, otherwise I may have to use another website.

Carries: ok

Which server and game sir

Me: Twisting Nethers, WoW

Carries: ok

Sec

Me: Thank you. Alliance

Carries: we have the gold in stock, u can buy it now, and also it 100% safe

Me: Ok but is it able to be placed in the bank?

I would like the deliverer to place it in our guild bank, if that is possible...

Carries: ok

If u choose the fast delivery, we can deliver the gold iwthin 30min

Me: I don't need fast delivery.

I will be here, ready for the delivery.

Ok so if the gold is ready, can you have the deliverer know that I will be having them place it in the Guild Vault? IF SO i WILL PLACE MY PURCHASE NOW

Sorry about the caps

Carries: ok

Sir, u just place 10k?

Me: Thank you, my purchase will be made now, and the name will be ****** ****. The character name is ******.

Carries: and it is up to u, if u don't need the fast delivery, just choose the normal mode

Me: ok thanks

One moment while I fill this form out

Carries: ok

Si r, u want as to put the gold on ur guild?

Me: Yes

Carries: and also ur char ****** is the president?

Me: Yes

Carries: ok

Me: If this works smoothly I will continue to buy 10k-40k every week

{{ What a joke that turned out to be}}

Carries: we just sent a confirmation lette rto u

Could uplz check ur email

Me: ok

I checked and replied.

Carries: sir

Could u plz email back ur phone number

Me: I believe I did...

Carries: ok

Checking

Sir, dont get ur email, could u plz sent the email to *******@gdpchina.com

Me: ok I will

I sent it

Carries: ok

Checking

Just sent the code to u

And if u get it, tell mehere

Me: ok

I don't see it yet

Carries:************** ur phone number right

Me: Yes...

Carries: just sent it again

Check it

Me: ok thanks

***[[MY EMAIL ADDRESS]]*** right?

Carries: we sent it to ur phone

{{why didn't she just send me the code here?}}

Me: oh it's a landline

I don't recieve email

Or texts on my landline

Carries: oh

Me: haha

Carries: sir do you have a cell

{{I paused here... I was very cautious of my words now... why do I need to have a cell phone? Nobody require that. At ALL!}}

Carries: we need to sent a text to u

Me: why do you need to text me

I have no cell phone

Carries: u can give us a phone number from ur friends or family, and we sent the code to him, when he get it, jus tell u, could u lpz havea try, thanks

Me: People I know don't even use cell phones it's a waste of money. I really don't have a cell phone and I don't understand why you require me to use one

{{I don't have one, it is a waste of money, and nobody around me had a cell phone on them that worked at the moment so it's not a lie. My friends email me, my family lives overseas.}}

Carries: sir, we need to sent a text with a code to u

If u can't borrow one, i hae another way to confirm ur order

Could u plz send us a picture of ur id card, driver license and credit card plzwe need to ensure u r the paypal acc holder. Need to check if ur information is same with on that paypal acc. Ucan take the picture by a phone camera or digital camera or website camera as. Jpg

{{ I was shocked! They want me to give personal information that I only entrust to PayPal... This is when I got on the phone with PayPal. I was baffled that anyone would do this and think they would get away with it! Outrageous!}}

Me: You can ontact me here or on my email, not sure why that's a problem. Can you confirm it by vouie and call it the number I sent you?

Voice*

Carries: ok

{{long wait... no call. I tried intimidation because I wanted this to work. I mean, this is a really good deal on gold!}}

Me: I have now contacted PayPal they enure me that the transaction is complete. What is it you need to onfirm?

Ensure* confirm*

Carries: sir, it is our confirmation step, sent the email and we sent the code to ur phone

Me: Would you please confirm that the money has arrived?

Carries: sir

I have told u right

Borrow a phone which can get a text, or sent a pic for ur cards, thanks very much

{{That's business right there... getting snappy with a paid customer... so sad}}

Me: I understand what you say, but I will not send it to you because I feel it is unneccesary.

{{ long wait... but then I had an idea. I would send a picture with the important information blocked out, and a large watermark on the front stating VOID so they can't use it again}}

Me: I will send you a picture of my cards then.

Carries: ok

Thanks very much

And plz don't cover ur name and expire time and number

{{busted before I sent it... they must do lots of scams}}

Me: NO. I want a refund I will use another company. I will not let you take any more info, you have your money what more could you need. I gave you too much information and you want banking info. You want my cell phone number and I do not trust you not to sell it to another company. I want a refund. If you do not give me a refund I will have to report you and your website to PayPal and others. I spoke with PayPal and they advised me not to give you the information you are asking for, they said you are trying to take advantage of me and I will not let you do that. No other place in the internet asks for a "cell" or a picture of my personal identification cards. This is rediculous. If you can just deliver the gold, as you have already been payed, I will continue to use this service. If you refuse to deliver the gold, I want a refund. So which will it be? Gold or refund.

Carries: ok, i ill leave a message to the manager

Me: And how long will that take? I apologize for having to do this but there is no need for a confirmation.

Carries: once the manager comes back, we ill contact u ok

{{24 hours later I did NOT get any contact of any kind. I need this gold by tonight because I owe a friend. I messaged them back and they gave me a very similar run around... I don't hve time to copy the rest... basically I said the same thing, give me the gold or give me the refund. She said I was refunded, so I checked up with PayPal, and they said no such thing occured. I filed a complaint with them, they said this: LISTEN CLOSELY ALL YOU WHO GOT RIPPED OFF: Call PayPal and file a complaint. If enough complaints are filed, they will stop doing business with them. I am now going to contact Google and complain there too, I advise you all to do the same. If they lose thier advertising and they lose their secure money transfer, they will have a sever loss in "business" and hopefully those scammers will go home with empty pockets. I would sue them too but I don't sue people. Too expensive. If someone has the money to spare, we should take these scammers out before they ruin the internet. Tey think they can get away with this because it's "virtual currency and goods" which are not covered by any of the agencies I know of, inluding PayPal. Well they should not be allowed to get away with this. Complain to the people that can make a difference, not here. I'm sure we have all the complaints we need.

Make a difference, eliminate the hackers, the cheaters and the thiefs from our online community. Call anyone who makes this campany who they are and tell them who they have been dealing with. Nobody wants to support a thief. If we get enough attention on these guys, The business will be invisible, they have to advertise themselves, convince you to trust them with your credit cards and at the same time make you feel safe. This is the best way to keep everyone safe from these sort of people
