Title: BLOCKCHAIN.INFO - troubles with SMS payments
Post by: unkn0wn12 on May 12, 2012, 06:19:40 PM
Hello,
I've bought 3+ bitcoins 1 time using phone and it goes very well - it cost approx. 50$ (141+ polish zlotys). Next time when i tried i called the number 7088 70979 and entered the code. It held me on line for 18+ minutes (horrible tarif - cash per minute) and after i've paid the payment window displayed something like "fraud attempt", but it ate my MONEY! I've tried second time - same thing. I DIDN'T RECIEVED BITCOINS BOTH TIMES BUT I SPEND 100$ FOR IT!

I've tried to contact blockchain's support - nobody responding me for 5 days. Same to ZayPay (payment provider) Customer Care. Nothing...

What can i do now?

I didn't knew blockchain.info sold coins.  Where on their site did you buy these coins?

can you go back to the site and verify the url displayed in your browser?
(if you still see the zaypay number, please post a screenshot)

Yes the option is there. just check the Wallet demo page and you'll see it.

Sorry about saying you were spreading FUD, OP. ;)

Why is this an issue ??? Can't get into the account without password anyway.

Watching because this is strange. What SMS service are they using ? Dialcoin ???

This is the problem, deposits are restricted to one per user per month.

The payment never reached us because ZayPay blocked it, I have asked them to refund the order but it can take a while.

Edit: Nevermind, yeah, changing the title would be nice, because the guy did not scam anyone.

You will not have your Bitcoins. From what i understood from piuk's reply he asked the payment processor to refund you.

How it will be refunded?

How it will be refunded?

To your phone prepaid credit most likely, if that was were it was taken. But if that's what will happen it could take months.
And dude, really, pay $50 for 3 bitcoins? geez... I don't know why do you guys think it's worth it, honestly.
Maybe I should fire up a page with my SMS gateway and start selling you all overpriced bitcoins.

Lol this is funny... Wouldn't be better to just ask ZayPay for this payment and send BitCoins to me?

@psy: do you know any other way to cashout money from phone? I have more than 5000$ on phones... Lol, i can also use some mobile payment processors...

He doesn't need to steal them.

Sometimes they give them. Like with €5 credit each. For someone with a little imagination it's easy to get 1000 of them, or even more than 1000 ;)
