    @Toaster05 What would be the point of coming back to say you'll repay people if you're running a scam to rip people off though?

    @BigOrkWaaagh were you asked to delete posts?

    Actions speak louder than words, until you get any kind of reimbursement it's a hollow gesture.

    I hope you get your money back and if it's for real then fantastic.

    @BigOrkWaaagh

    im not saying its the case here, but on avforums, it seems to be quite commong for people to do similar things as a free 'pay day' loan - ie, sell something online, get the money, then spin a story out until payday and then refunds are made...

    again, im not inferring for a minute that that is the case here, i can just understand the cycnicism...i'm assuming, if this is true, the mods will be able to check ip addresses to see if it's the same poster? i may be wrong on this but i know that's what's done on avf sometimes...

    @Toaster05 I haven't been asked to delete any posts, but then I hadn't made any at the time!

    I'm getting messages from someone claiming to be the original account holder asking me to delete my posts relating to being fucked over.

    If you are for real, you'd post in public and I won't let you his behind more lies.

    Hi I used to be the proper owner of the f3112006 account. From what I can gather Iíve been away For a few weeks some cunts hacked me and gone round and got as much money as possible I saw your name in my email. Now I guess itís down to me for having lax security so I will try and reimburse you ASAP. I have told the kids and they are investigating. Iím afraid that if someone gets the up theyíll end up at my house and I have a new born so do t really want shit going down like that.


    Bullshit, I'm calling you out.

    Thanks mate. Classy.




    So yeah I was away a few days and it seemed someone has had some fun on my account.

    I have emails of the messages so anyone who has sent this person money message me with proof of what you sent and Iíll try sort you out.

    I work in a game shop so anything you could maybe want let me know.

    I could just ignore it and just not log in ever again and it be the end but thatís a shitty thing to do.

    So pm me please so I can sort it

    I don't actually care about the money. I'm just find it annoying that is not just me.

    Which is why I'd be happy to go without if I got the straight truth.

    So you got a payday loan and now want to pay people back. Nice one :)

    @Allyz1_1 If you have copies of the messages then don't you already know what everyone's sent? Also Xbox credit was specifically requested so I don't know how what proof could really be offered? Anyway, I paid for A Way Out on Xbox One so if you could sort that out then that would be great.

    If it was a hack then why not just post and mention that? Asking me to delete my post seems way too shady.

    @Toaster05 because I was hoping to get the account back.

    Fuck! He's shafted me too! And on the same fucking game. I got Xbox credit for him for 30 quid and he claimed the code had been redeemed but then said he'd send the game anyway.

    Well, considering how many good, trust worthy people there are on here I can't be that mad.

    Just sucks he's fucked over more than just myself.
    Ah damn, same thing happened to me too and again, for the same game! Paid £30 directly to a bank account, got a message the day before yesterday to say the gameís been posted. But of course looking at this it hasnít. Canít believe 2 others also got screwed over for the same thing...

    ok, i think it's a good idea to make this clearer

    drhcnip - ni no kuni 2 - 30
    pogo - pokken tournament - 25 xbox credit
    clart - 30 - ? (ni no kuni again?)
    toaster05 - 30 - ? (ni no kuni again?)
    bigork - 15 xbox credit - a way out

    definitely something dodgy from someone as he sold ni no to me saying that he was giving up with somebody else because they kept sending him dodgy credit - that seems to be a common pattern

    clart & toaster, it sounds to me like you've both been suckered in for ni no kuni as well...?

    sorry, ork, not sure how much credit you sent for a way out but that's £130 so far...have i missed anyone?

    I think Half Life 3 being announced is more likely.

    problem is, it was obviously a reasonable price, but it's the sort of price that gets offered on here for stuff from time to time so it wasn't unrealistic...
