Default Unauthorized charge

I have been charged 124 USD by this company (which I have never heard of.) I don't even know what they make, let alone actually order anything. This is out and out fraud, and if I can't stop payment, I will launch proceedings. Anyone else have such problems?

Contact your credit card company.

If someone were to fraudulently charge amounts to my credit card, I know the first place I'd turn to would be my friendly local renai forum =P

Seriously, though, you should do as Carl says and contact your credit card provider as soon as possible.

Hmm, that's a possibility I hadn't considered. If that's the case, then sorry, Bob, but you've got the wrong place. This is a community site for fans of Japanese video games; there's no commercial activity going on here at all, let alone a company that might be charging your credit card.

Doesn't sound like he's talking about this site, unless of course there's a mysterious Haeleth Inc. going around charging people's credit cards.

It's ambiguous, I'll grant you - "this company" can be read either as "a certain company" or as "the company based at this site". But why else ask here? I mean, if it were a regular complaining about Himeya or something, then that would make sense, but so far as I can tell this isn't someone who has posted here before, and I can't think why one would choose a ren'ai-game forum to seek advice in... :/

Did they by any chance find my first post when I found the charge from BBServe I didn't recognize when it came in the same day as my Himeya order? I remember I was panicked about it when I wrote the post and knew this was the place to ask since everyone orders from Himeya (after lurking for a few months ^^;).

Just out of curiosity, is there a spam filter installed here? This could be some attempt to get whitelisted.

OTOH, I can't find pieces of this text copypastaed across a bunch of forums. Check it:
Google:"I don't even know what they make"
Google:"This is out and out fraud, and if I can't stop payment"
Google:"let alone actually order anything"

It's probably too soon for those strings to show up on google...

Default Unauthorized charge

I was led to this chat by a series of links when I Googled "Himaya Soft," which is the name of the party that has charged my account. I managed to reach their CPA at a company named Jeiji Yamane. If, as you say, there is no "company" and no one is charged for anything, you might want to check into this.

Meanwhile, enjoy whatever it is that you do here. Looks like fun.

Bob

What does "whitelisted" mean?
