There was recently a large amount of fraud committed by one user over the course of several months. Today we have received over $5000 in chargebacks from this users accumulative purchases, and while unfortunate, all users that had ranks purchased by this person will have them removed immediately. If your rank suddenly disappears or you get downgraded this is most likely the cause. The person in question used the email Mn66129@student.musg.org and has made purchases for nearly 30 users. I have filed a complaint with IC3, sent them all relevant information including name, address, IP address, and more. Hopefully the person responsible will be prosecuted by the appropriate law enforcement for this large amount of fraud. Usually we would ban anyone who received perks from a user that later charged back, but because they bought them for so many people we have decided not to ban the people he purchased for. Instead the perks received will simply be removed.
Due to this event we are short on income this month as my account is currently sitting negative in the amount of several thousand dollars. We were hoping to purchase advertising again this month to boost our player count, but with this issue may not be able to. As such we will be holding a fundraiser on the donation store at some point in the next few days. Please post a comment below if you have a reasonable suggestion for something we could add to the fundraiser 'package' that will be created.
Thank you for your continued support of GotPvP.
