Author Topic: Credit card blocked - last transaction Adultwork  (Read 2590 times)

Offline Ipunter

My card just got blocked when I tried to pay my kandco account off. Works fine on aw. I have had to verify my last transaction with my bank, which once was adultwork lol

The women from the card company knows of a work and sniggered,

If she knows of awork, how does she know, maybe she selling her self  :cool:

Quite right, they can't (or shouldn't anyway), I'm just saying they know that's all.

This may have been covered above, but...

OP - does her indoors see the credit card statement and if so doesn't she wonder why you're paying AW, or are you hoping she doesn't know what it is?

Each to their own mate, but for me that would be a serious breach of the punters code of practice!

......but why does the card get blocked - I'm getting anxious now :scare:

Online companies that allow you to anonymously buy credits (of any type, porn, gambling etc) are often used by card thieves to turn stolen cards into cash.  They can load up an account with credits and then sell it without having a traceable route back to the thief.  So, a card which is used for this type of purchase will flag up a possible fraud warning, and be blocked until the card issuer can confirm the purchase was genuine.

It's not a good idea to use credit/debit cards (other than the pre-paid type) for adultwork.  Banks increasingly look at your purchase history for assessing credit risk / affordability on certain financial products (e.g. mortgages). Adult services are one of those things  (along with gambling) that can increase your perceived risk.

I've had no issues using MasterCard on AW used it loads and no problem, and if it was blocked who cares about phoning a call centre to get it unblocked it’s only a phone call totally anonymous you aren’t going to meet them

Just read that mumsnet thread, or as much as I could be arsed with.

How fucking much was he putting on there a month?! Jesus wept, more money than sense some people. He must be paying for cams I imagine, or buying a whole shit load of PG's.

The mind boggles. Am I in the minority by never having paid any money to AW? Can't see the point...I give enough cash to the WG's. Look after the pennies, and all that...

Yesterday my credit card provider texted me saying my credit card was at risk of fraud and blocking my account. When I rang them for more info the girl said 'the last transaction was to Awork 3 days ago - is that correct sir?' Maybe it was my imagination but I thought I could hear her sniggering in the background. I had to admit that it was and now have to go through all the hassle of changing my credit card. Her indoors says it's never happened to her and that I should change my cc provider. Of course it may be that Adultwork are completely blameless in this but I just can't take that risk so won't be buying any more AW credits. Comments anyone?

Could be one of two reasons:

1. The spend with Aw was 'oops' = out of pattern spend - triggering a call to you to check if it's really you spending with aw. No reason to block your card if you confirm the transaction was genuine though.

2. Your card issuer may have had a spate of fraudulent transactions with aw. That could trigger blocking and reissuing your card.

I used my credit card last week to get credit on Adultwork and a few days later had my bank contact me to say my card had become compromised! They had stop a transaction going through on online betting site and once they established it was not me they cancelled the card and issued me a new one. I won't be making that mistake again! However the lady I talked too on the phone was very professional and when A Work was mentioned as being the last time I used the card I did not feel she cared what the site was and was just happy to establish when I had and had not used the card.

I cannot believe there is a bank in the world with the resources to look at your income and expenditure in that much detail. They'll look at monthly totals and average trends and may ask you how much you spend on bills and socialising etc but they aren't going to take any notice of a small sum to an online company.
