The Halifax bank, with the Bank of Scotland as a subsidiary, have decided to block automatic monthly payments to World of Warcraft.According to a Halifax spokesman, the reason behind this is World of Warcraft is experiencing high incidences of credit card fraud.

The spokesman stated its an issue with the the users themselves and not with Blizzard’s online billing system.While automatic payments are being stopped, customers can subscribe to World of Warcraft but must first contact the Halifax or Bank of Scotland to authorize future payments.

“We do not believe the fraud has anything to do with Blizzard themselves, their sites or the integrity of their billing systems, rather it is site users utilizing stolen credit card details to pay for subscriptions,”the Halifax spokesman said. “If a customer wants to subscribe to a game site operated by Blizzard, using a Halifax or Bank of Scotland credit card, we can arrange for the payments to be processed for them if they contact us.”
