WOWMINE: A MINE OF LIES (1/3)

Okay, so it’s pretty much established that I’m a online viagra pharmacie miami florida WoW player who buys gold. I’d also like to establish the fact that I’m a cheapskate who subsists on Ramen noodles, wears bargain basement clothes and borrows my dad’s fully-gassed car just so I can afford the things I really like – a kick-ass PC and WoW gold, to name a couple.

However, a cheapskate will always be a cheapskate. I’m on viagra uk next day delivery a perpetual quest for the best WoW gold deal. I Google "wow gold" to death and run myself to the ground compiling a list of viagra prescription coupon special deals from hundreds of RMTs and comparing them down to the last cent. Gold prices fluctuate every now and then, and El Cheapo Moi has a hissy-fit when I find out that 1000 gold is now just $12.95 at the same site where I bought the same amount of gold for $23.

I’m obsessed, I know.

So obsessed that I nearly had cardiac arrest out of excitement when I saw this posted as one of Google’s sponsored links:

WowMine-1

1000 WoW Gold for only $5 at WoWMine.com.

It’s like I died and went to buying viagra in tijuana WoW heaven.

But common sense resurrected me and brought me back to earth. Hello P.T. Barnum! I’m not the sucker who was born just a minute ago. My saner side prevailed. I clicked the link and saw more bull than in that annual run they have in Pamplona, Spain:

"5 MINUTES DELIVERY GUARANTEE*".

WoWMine-2

Five minutes? Really?

But what’s up with the asterisk? We’ll find out later.

Here’s more BS and what is possibly the crappiest English on cialis cheap online direct the face of the earth:

WoWMine-3

Okay, let’s try to analyze the copy. WoWMine "keep lowering the gold price" and "pioneer" the 50-cent per 100 WoW gold deal. Right. So customers enjoyed the "slash" (gee, hope nobody died) and generic cialis by phone they offered it a second time — only it took the WoWMine geniuses nearly two years to repeat the promo. That’s almost 24 months of your life wasted and now they’re telling us to "wait patiently for the next seasonal slash" should we poor suckers miss it.

Right.

Anyway, generic viagra levitra and cialis pills back to the $5 / 1000 gold come-on line…

I decided to check out the stock levels on my server. Looks like there’s gold in them thar WowMine hills. Currently 30,562 gold on Feathermoon US Alliance. Nice. But when I saw the total price for 1000 gold I nearly shat bricks:

WoWMine-4
FIFTY-SIX DOLLARS AND 35 CENTS??!!! WTF???!!!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE 5 DOLLAR DEAL???

Time to consult WoWMine’s trusty chat support team who may have a decent enough explanation. I get some random person named Balinda who basically tells me:

1. The 5 dollar deal is viagra uk without prescription a seasonal offer. Which season she didn’t say. It’s spring here but they could be neck-deep in winter snow in their side of the planet but like I give a damn what temperature they have now BECAUSE THEY SHOULDN’T BE ADVERTISING $5/100G AND TAKING BACK THEIR FRIGGIN’ WORD! If the promotion has ended, they should take out the confounded copy!

2. The promo was offered once last year. That’s funny. I thought they first offered it in April 2006 and cialis 36 hour price compare offered it a second time, which logically means this year so….eh, what the heck, if they were trying to say something else, then something got lost in translation. It’s their fault their English is crappier than a hillbilly outhouse.

3. The next best thing she can offer me is about viagra generic viagra canada if I "order 100g, you would get 5% bonus. If you order 100 < G < = 2000 gold, it would be 8% bonus, and so on." Her equation didn’t make any sense but since I wasn’t dealing with a Nobel Laureate, I decided to let that one slide.

4. They’re restocking their inventory "at the moment, that means all the gold we have now are for existing orders." WTF?? Whatever happened to the 30,562 gold available on Feathermoon US Alliance? You mean they were wiped out within the 2 minutes it took me to get to that page and contact their Live Chat??

5. If I am "not in a great hurry to get the gold", I can just "place an order now" and they try their best to fulfill my order ASAP. In most cases, ASAP for them takes 3 days. So much for 5-minute deliveries. Sigh.

BUT! But since I am basically a POSITIVE cheapskate, albeit a reckless and Machiavellian one, I WILL place an order. Who knows, I just might get my gold within 5 minutes of ordering. Miracles still happen in this world, right? LOL!

Tell you about it in the next post. For the meantime, kiddies, enjoy the screen shots I took of my lovely little chat with WoWMine’s super agent Balinda. Read ‘em and weep.

    Hi there , I like a lot your blog post expecially the article for feathermoon gold and your post regarding : A MINE OF LIES | WoW Gold Facts , it looks very interesting. I found you on yahoo while searching for feathermoon gold . I just Stumble it on Saturday !

    It’s like chatting with a kid :p

    Never got any gold, got a receipt that the gold was mailed but none was, contacted customer service several times and was given the runaround until the “seven day” policy of refund was up. Got no gold and no refund and customer service was rude and unhelpful. Due to number of negative ratings on this company, believe it to be largely a scam. Do NOT buy from this company unless you want to be ripped off.

  6. Ranger on 24 Jul 2008 at 2:12 pm #

    5 Days still no gold!! ETA on site said 80% chance of it taking 24-72 hours. The rest of the % was less than 24 hours. After 3 days I contacted the live chat support and after waiting 20 min talked to someone who said: “Yeah sorry we’ll hurry now though.” Two days later still no Gold. A character transfer could have been made to my sever to make the <5 min delivery time advertised all over the site actually happen but they didn’t do that. So since I was looking for a new good site to buy from, I obviously won’t use this one.

  7. Ranger on 24 Jul 2008 at 2:26 pm #

    They also list a: WoWMine’s 100% Refund Guarantee WoWMine’s goods offer a 100% Refund Guarantee. We completely understand the challenges of buying online and we never consider a transaction complete until we hear our customer is completely satisfied. That is why we offer a 100% Refund Guarantee! Your purchase at WoWMine is backed by a full 100% satisfaction guarantee. When you buy from WoWMine, you are buying from an experienced, reputable seller. We have years of experience selling WoW gold and about 90% positive feedbacks. but later in their return and exchange policy they post: Return and Exchange Policy All sales are final. Goods in the virtual world do not share the predicament of those in the meatspace. One is unable to receive ersatz, counterfeit nor defective merchandise in the virtual world. Therefore, we do not accept return merchandise. And where is the feedback section?? I want to give some feedback! There are tons of nicely written posts from lovely people who were “greatly satisfied” with wowmine’s service with EXCELLENT A++ ratings and pictures of responsible looking gamers (so we know they must be real “testimonials”) but how many WOW players do you know who talk like that?

  8. Matthew on 07 Aug 2008 at 6:09 pm #

    I know wowmine sucks but I placed an order with them before I knew about this site, and as soon as I read this, I asked for a refund from the instant service person, and sure enough I got my refund the next day (Today). So they suck at gold selling but can refund well. At least for me :)

  9. The Pope on 26 Aug 2008 at 8:19 am #

    I had a similar experience. Luckily, I did get the gold that I ordered; however, I took nearly 48 hours. My customer support conversation looks almost identical to the OPs. One of farmers called my cell phone when it was ready and told me to log in to get the gold. I was told that someone would “whisper [me] in a minute”. 30 minutes later, some one contacted me and got me the order. Overall, I am just glad that I did not get completely scammed. I would strongly advise others to stay away from this site.

  10. soup on 28 Aug 2008 at 4:45 pm #

    what a joke that website is i wish i woul have seen this before i went through the hassle of fighting for three days to get a refund what a waste o time that was

  11. Granty on 11 Oct 2008 at 11:07 am #

    Ive used wowmine.com like, about 20 times. No problems. Sometimes it can be frustrating. Gold takes about 8 days to get etc. But overall. No problems. I have a question, Im interested in buying an Account, for when Wrath hits. Bored of my Rogue and I hate leveling! What are like on Accounts? Or are they Accunts like half of the other Account buying sites?

  12. james on 15 Oct 2008 at 6:13 pm #

    im waiting twoo weeks for 2 k gold right now i used to have great bussines with them but fuck all right now they will go bust if they continue like this cause all it takes is screaming in every server that they suck and good bye companie.

  13. patrick on 16 Oct 2008 at 7:03 pm #

    well i didn’t find your review till 5 hours after i bought some gold from wowmine talked to 3 different people before she told me they hadn’t mined the gold yet so it would be tomorrow. i’m just glad i went cheap and only did 200 gold as a test. i said i wanted a refund she told me it would be 8 days. i accused them of stealing from me and if i didn’t get my cash back in my paypal account in the next half hour i would tell everyone on every wow board i could find as a warning to other customers. i got my refund.

  16. Thorn on 23 Nov 2008 at 6:22 pm #

    I had a similar experience that is ongoing. I ordered through Google’s pay service so I could protect myself further, I do not trust these gold farmers to begin with but I gave in. Too many characters, and no time to farm gold. So I caved in. Went with Goldmine because it advertised on Google and they had a professional looking service structure in place. Hey 5 minute guarantee, cant beat that right? Well nothing in an hour, I chat with them online and I am told they have a higher than normal demand, that it will take longer. I try to pin them down on a time, they give me nothing. I threaten to cancel my order and contest the charges through google, and or my credit card and they say it shouldn’t take more than 24 hours. I am livid. Placed the order this afternoon. I will check back and update you as things progress.

  17. Andrew on 04 Dec 2008 at 7:59 pm #

    I ordered from this site nearly 2 days ago and i spoke with many agents they all kept saying 1-7 hours. what was interesting is that i spoke to one agent because i wanted to change my email on the order and she said i should be getting a call for my gold. so they actually called, when i answered some girl verified my server, amount of gold ,and char name, she than asked if i wanted to change my email i said yes she said please contact a representative through chat and said have a nice day bye * hangs up* i was like wth? so i been bothering them for a while now its not been full 2 days yet but after the third day im asking for a refund. anyone know of a trusting site with great feedback?

  18. Extreme Gold Fan on 04 Dec 2008 at 9:17 pm #

    Hi Andrew, IGE and MySuperSales worked for me. I reviewed both sites in the past and they delivered. Plus they have awesome customer support. Check them out at http://www.ige.com and http://www.mysupersales.com. They’re the only two sites I can recommend at this point since the other sites I reviewed performed dismally. Best, EGF

  21. Mitzi on 04 Jan 2009 at 3:11 pm #

    I purchased gold from wowgold1000.com. I got 3/4 of it less than an hour from ordering. It has been three days and many live chats later and I still don’t have the rest of my gold. Its the same story time after time. We are collecting for you and will call as soon as we get it. This site is awful. I would not recommend it to anyone.

    i GOT MY GOLD A MONTH A A HALF LATER

  23. brittelight on 26 Jan 2009 at 3:06 am #

    Arrrghh!!!!!! I wish I had seen this post first, I got scammed as well. I finally went with IGE.com and got the gold within an hour. (had to wait 1 hour to open mail) here is my experience with WoWmine- brittelight: Hello, I ordered some gold 24 hours ago and I still have not received it Windy: let me contact our agent to check for you brittelight: Am i supposed to do something to get it? Windy: our agent is checking if your order is ready now ^^ Windy: Could you go to booty bay and put an item in action house,the buyout price is 2059gold , then tell me the name of the item. our delivery guy will buy the item shortly. after that you can receive your gold in your ingame mailbox Windy: is that ok?^^ brittelight: um it might take a min Windy: ok Windy: thank you ^^ brittelight: actually i don’t have the flight point to booty bay, my character is only a level 25, which is why I need the gold :) Windy: you order 1750 gold right Windy: the more gold is the charge for booty bay brittelight: yes I did order 1750, but the guy earlier said they would give me 2000 for the wait Windy: sec please Windy: how much you had bought ? Windy: 1000 gold ? brittelight: I originally bought 1750G for $29.99 brittelight: but they say they can give me 5% more for waiting Windy: wait a moment please brittelight: that’s 1837.5 brittelight: gold Windy: let me ask our agent Windy: our agent is checking now Windy: we can give you total 1800 gold Windy: let me ask our agent to add the bonus for you

  24. Carnage on 31 Jan 2009 at 9:56 pm #

    I hope none of you people had as much trouble as i did. After i refunded my gold i got some in game mail from them i marked as spam. then the next day or two someone whispered me that they were a bounty hunter and would delete my account. The death threats they give you are lies.

    Have just gone through a similar bad experience on the “Live4Game” site. I’m on an EU server and after a week and many Live Chats was telephoned at 5am for a face to face transfer! Idiot me logs on and waits and waits and then has a Live Chat. Sorry gold gone now! F*^%%&*^%&%^&^%%£$£*()K!!!! Advised to use AH for transfer. Auction expired after 48 hours – twice! F(&%$£*%*())K!! Refund a week later? – manager not here – refund in morning. No refund. Same next day. Billing office closed for the day – refund in morning. Raised a ‘Disputed Transaction’ with PayPal – refunded same day.

    I just had to respond. I placed an order with wowmine. After numerous live chats that kept telling me to wait 3-4 more hours. Come back later today or tomorrow and they will email me. And then after waiting for agent for 2 hours to have him finally come on and then say it was a shift change please relogin to live chat. (Unbelievable) I finally refused to leave the live chat without either a refund or gold delivery I got it. It is quite amusing. Sorry it is so long but I guess it is what you have to do to get your gold!

Tigo: You were supposed to receive the gold more than 12 hours ago . But the delay is due to the banning farming account on your serve recently, mate.Pls give us another few hours, we do understand your feeling now, I can stand on your side thinking. Mate, we have been farming the gold with the farmers on the way, and the farmers still did not accumulate the stock now, which means the stock has not been updated . sorry, pls just wait a day ,mostly within the next 12 hours . i think it will be soon , sir . we have hired more farmers confronting with the height demand from our dear customers. when we send the gold to you , we will call you and send an email to you to inform you to check your mailbox Dalia: About 2 hours ago a person named Liusweeth contacted me in the game and said she had 1500 gold for me. So I went to Ratchet and met her. She said she needed me to wait a few minutes. Then she said oh there has been a problem and now I can’t give it to you. What is that all about? Tigo: Sir, we will inform you once we ready the shipment for you,ok? Dalia: Nah I’m pretty upset and I am not a sir please. Dalia: I know when I am being scammed.

Unless you can give it to me in 10 minutes I want my money back Dalia: No comment about the person Liusweeth who told me she had my gold? Tigo: Sir, you paid and we will give the gold to you Dalia: I AM NOT A SIR Dalia: In ten minutes? Tigo: To be honest, I can not guarantee the exact deliver time, but we will try our best to finish your order ,ok? Dalia: then i want my money back Dalia: YOur website says never out of stock so this is crap Tigo: Madam, we don’t have the authority to issue the refund, we have to forward the refund request to our financial dept and they will issue the refund to you. The refund will be sent to your account in 5 business days, do you still want a refund or wait some more hours? Dalia: WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dalia: That is not acceptable.

Tigo: we don’t have the authority to issue the refund Dalia: I don’t give a crap I want the money returned right now or I will put a complaint on paypal Dalia: I want to talk to someone right now put them on Dalia: WoWMine’s 100% Refund Guarantee WoWMine’s goods offer a 100% Refund Guarantee.

I will keep waiting right here until I have gold, does that work for yoU? Tigo: That is ok if you don’t mind waiting Dalia: Nope I’ll just keep chatting to you Dalia: ok for you? Tigo: OK Dalia: So are you friends with the girl who approached me and to deliver the gold that ended up not coming? The one who hates farming but has to to pay for tuition that is very expensive? Dalia: and are you partners with her website she tried to get me to go to http://www.liusite.com Dalia: How long have you worked here? Tigo: We don’t know http://www.liusite.com Dalia: OH funny. The girl who said she was delivering for you said she could cut out the middle man and give it to me a lot cheaper. She said you guys don’t hardly pay her at all. She says she sells to you for cheap so she can continue to go to school and then you charge customers a lot. This happened on my last order too. Maybe you need to look at your farmers Dalia: She said 5 dollars per 1k gold Dalia: So how many farmers work for you? Dalia: How much of my gold have they collected? Dalia: la la la la la la la la la la la Tigo: Caution! He may steal your info from us by pretending to be supplying gold. The REAL supplier will just give you the ordered gold, without requiring anything from you in the game, nor would he utter anything negative about our service. Please ignore them! We believe those who do business with us would see the fruit and would find it sweet and fresh. We truly hope that you’re one of the conscious customers who may judge others by self experience instead of rumors. Dalia: just a waiting for my gold la la la waiting for my gold la la la Dalia: It’s funny because with my first order the same thing happened but she actually delivered the gold. This time she did not. I didn’t give her any info. But it is funny that she actually had my order the first time. Dalia: And if I’m judging by self experience it isn’t so good here as it has been over 84 hours and still I am told to wait. Which I will gladly do right here until I get delivery. Works for me Dalia: How could she deliver the gold for you if she doesn’t work for you? Doesn’t it seem suspicious Dalia: Have you checked my gold order yet? Dalia: Any progress? Dalia: Got it yet? Dalia: Have they collected it yet/ Dalia: Farmers working hard for me? Dalia: ARe you pushing them hard so you can tell me it is ready? Dalia: I’m patiently waiting in Ratchet for you Tigo: We usually deliver the gold by ingame mail, if by ingame trade we will call you to log in the game if your character offline when we ready, so no need to wait online Dalia: Oh no I’m waiting right here and online with my character until delivery Dalia: So do you play wow? Tigo: Not much Dalia: No? It is such a fun game. I have a level 72 Nightelf Hunter, 61 Bloodelf Paladin and my deathknight Dalia who you know lol Tigo: Good news for you – we can TRADE with you in game NOW!

    My top 3 sites that I can recommend to you guys: 1. WOWGOLDPIG – the original PIG – wowgoldpig.com 2. IGE – ige.com 3. Mysupersales – mysupersales.com These are the best on the web right now. *thumbs up*

  34. Evil on 29 Apr 2009 at 8:34 am #

    lol, I made an order with wowgoldpig for 5k – it got delivered approximately 2 hours after I made the order. Fking brilliant site.

    I am one of the few people to have actually received good service a number of times, however, if you ever try and cancel the payment to WOWMINE (as it appears on your payments as something completely unrelated) they will respond six months later with a very unpleasant message telling you that you must respond in 48 hours or they will either send all your personal information to debt collectors and local law enforcement (yeah right…) or contact Blizzard and try to have your account banned for breaking the WOW terms and conditions (though if it is your first time it will either be a warning or a small timed ban for about 2 months.) REALLY friendly behavior for a letter that could have just asked why the payment was not made and stated likely things that may happen to you if you fail to respond… Please send $17.15 to [email protected] as soon as possible. If we don’t get a formal reply from you in 48 hours, we will take the actions as follows: 1) File a real name report to Blizzard by FAX as we have the full information of your character and the trading transaction details of your RMT dealing of gold. They will launch an investigation to your account activities for infringement of their terms. We will corroborate all of the pertaining information. Although Blizzard and we stand on different grounds in terms of business practice, we will share your fraudulent activities with them to prevent your future pursue of even more frauds. 2) Your phone number and all of your personal information will be served to the debt collection agencies, justice and law enforcement departments of your IP and your verified phone originating area for record keeping purposes or further action. If you still have any questions, please connect us by MSN:[email protected]

    In reasponse to Wildboys comments on WoW Mine I for one would expect that kind of tactic with them. I did not get gold but I played hard ball and phoned my credit card issuer whilst in chat with them sometime ago it was well over 6 months now since I last used them and I hasten to add I will never do that again in fact it has put me off gold sellers in general and I now work hard on WoW to earn my gold and also feel the sense of achivement I get from seeing my gold build up. I read the message and to be honest it sounds a lot of hot air. For one the police and or law enforcement agencies would probably laugh at them for trying that stunt I am pretty sure the police in the UK would tell them to politely fuck off and not even try and chase someone up for the kind of money they have got missing. If you do have a credit card and have a dispute with these cowboys by all means get your credit issuer involved and if they back you up these wankers have nothing they can do to you. Also they are breaking several privacy laws by saying that they have your phone number and address and will give it to Blizzard or that fact the law enforcement agencies and either or would tell them where to stick it and I would think looking at it logically that if Blizzard did get that kind of information I would suspect they would want WoWmine shut down itself. So my words are simple BULLSHIT BULLSHIT and yes even more BULLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. Thankyou that is all from one fucking hard case brit yeah and a message to the employee’s of WoWMine go fucking jump off a very fucking high cliff you rip off scumbags.

    I would like to add that I have used WoWMine on several occasions. They usually take UPTO AND OVER a week. In one instance I received a receipt but NO GOLD was delivered. However, after emailing them they did place another order that I did not pay for and then sent my gold. Top and bottom of it is that no gold buying site can be trusted. They’re ran by idiots in third-world sweat shop type places.

  38. beloved.fruitloop on 11 Jan 2012 at 5:59 am #

    You know I think I got gold in like 15 min once and it was for like 100 gold 5 years ago. Right now I am waiting since moneybrokers had an error in informing wowmine of the payment made to their account. sighs, I waited 3 days before and a phone call to CS where a Asian woman with the thickest accent and improper use of the English language answered the phone I got my gold in 5 min or less. Now this time CS apparently has my phone number flagged because they aren’t answering!

  39. David on 15 Oct 2012 at 11:03 pm #
