Yeah there may be a 1.00 auth charge and I though perhaps the 14.99 was the same thing and will fall off.  I called American Express and t hey said no this is an actual merchant charge not a pre auth and will not fall off. 

 

Very deceiving on their part Zenimax.  Having American Express remove that charge as well. I don't mind if they specified you have to pay your sub up front then get 30 days free but that has never been like this for any other mmo I have ever played.

I would say this was a billing error in thier system. It can happen easy enough, tons of MMO's out there have had billing issues, double charges, etc. Its too bad it had to happen in the first month, but as they have replied in thier forums, they are admitting that if there was a charge it would be an error, and are there to help correct it. Anything else is worthless speculation and trolling.

To be  clear my  original post was before they admitted this so i was not trolling.

Before? you mentioned nothing in your original post about even attempting to contact Zeni, or maybe look to see if any news about this issue was posted, we can only go by what you write, and what you wrote sounded as if you'd done none of that, if you don't want to be accused of trolling, formulate a more concise post.

What do they gain when they get caught with  their hands in something like that? I know there are corrupt businesses out there, but this would be a rather amateurish scam, as it's easily traceable, there are far too many who would make noise about something like this, it would be idiotic.... How can you not see that?

They gain money.

And even if it is a mistake, that just proves that they're capable of idiocy.  

And besides, as this thread aptly shows, any amount of "noise" that is made will be somewhat countered by fanbois rushing to defend the newest big MMO.

- Both accounts state I have 29 days of playtime remaining.

- I was charged twice on my PayPal account, for a monthly subscription fee.

This is practically a scam, I expect my subscription money refunded.

people like you really need to contact the merchant before creating slanderous posts like this on other gaming websites.

LOL how is it slanderous to make it known they were incorrectly charged, which is a horrible mistake at best and a scam at worst.

lol so a simple billing error is idiocy LOL what a lauch, people are such fools these days. What harm have they done, none, there was a computer error and they have acknowlaged it and advised they are more than happy to help any affected customers...give them a freakin break, these things happen, and HAVE happened in most other major MMO's over the years.

its slanderous because it was not done intentionaly, it was an error they have acknolaged and advised they are fully prepared to fix, but instead the affected folks come here to whine, most productive.

Just checking over my account.  As of 4:43pm today (the last charge on my credit card listed) I haven't been charged for my subscription.  Logging into my account, it has a thing saying I should set up a subscription, but under that says I have 30 days remaining...

Like Distopia said....you really think they are scamming us? Go through the normal checks and balances...STOP the friggin moronic conspiracy theories...


PayPal listed both transactions as being completed. It wasn't until a few minutes ago that they are now listed as cancelled by the vendor. Updated my post to reflect this change.

I was looking at the facts from PayPal as they came in, they charged me twice, but cancelled both charges minutes later. This isn't starting a conspiracy theory, this is highlighting poorly thought out launch plans on ZOE's part. I figured it out now, but countless others will not and cancel their orders because of it.

people like you really need to contact the merchant before creating slanderous posts like this on other gaming websites.

LOL how is it slanderous to make it known they were incorrectly charged, which is a horrible mistake at best and a scam at worst.

its slanderous because it was not done intentionaly, it was an error they have acknolaged and advised they are fully prepared to fix, but instead the affected folks come here to whine, most productive.

I love armchair lawyers who got their law degree out of a Cracker Jack box.

First off, slander is verbal. The word you want is libel, which is written.

Second, you cannot commit slander or libel if you are telling the truth. The truth is they billed people wrongly. Whether their fault or someone else', it does ot change that fact.

Go back to playing games, Sherlock. You're reaching above your paygrade here.

Wait.... People were charged today for time that doesn't begin for another 32 days, essentially making people pay $75 for a game, and people got upset. There are really people here defending Zenimax for a screw up this big?

you talk about facts but all you did was look at a paypal statement instead of first asking the merchant....dont talk of facts if they are not complete. Again, instead of running here with torches people should be dealing with this in a professional matter, maybe im expecting too much...

The OP was enough of an insult to logic, I need no further proof that that I suppose lol

TBH I think the OP had the right reaction, but that's pretty much where it ended, it's those that jumped at the chance to blow something else up that really took it some place else. Zenimax responded to this hours ago openly, yet people are still jumping in acting as though it's some ongoing conspiracy. IN the OP's defense he even said it wasn't that big a deal to him, it just caught him by surprise. That was before he even knew what was going on.
