Disclaimer: I am not in love with the Lam brothers. I would sooner do the three-way nasty with Remus and Cletus than even touch the Oriental dynamic duo with the proverbial ten-foot pole. It’s not my fault that readers are often sending juicy stuff about them my way and it’s not my fault that they’re too awesome to not share. So again, if I talk about them a lot, it’s not because I’m in love with them. Methinks one needs to be heavily medicated and brainwashed to even half-like them (unless you’re their momma).
So with that little preamble out of the way, let’s check out the latest tidbit about Wowmine…
Below is a recently-approved comment from reader Wildboy, who left his say on the first installment of my WoWMine review .
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:Penquiry@hotmail.com
Is this sh*t for real? Okay, assuming it’s for real….
Yup, REALLY friendly behavior from a bunch of alleged click fraudsters (if Microsoft’s claims against them are to be believed) and alleged malware perpetrators (based on an BruceOnGames writeup) who have to be severely retarded to even insinuate – and even believe – that Blizzard would be thrilled to deal with them. Who are you kidding? That’d be like the narcs extracting info from the most wanted drug dealer and letting said drug dealer waltz back into the streets. Think you could then walk away alive and with your business intact? Ha! I bet Blizz would chop your heads off in a nanosecond and put them on a platter, with soy sauce and chili paste on the side. (That is, if you could even muster the nerve to waltz into Mr. Morhaime’s office to begin with)
How they can even begin to write this threatening email already gives me the heebie-jeebies. So this is what you do to a customer who decides they don’t want to do business with you, eh, Wowmine? You f*cking shamelessly bully them (after 6 months, go figure) into sending you money.
Talk about f*cking chutzpah.
"They will launch an investigation to your account activities for infringement of their terms. …we will share your fraudulent activities with them to prevent your future pursue of even more frauds." — Ooooh, speaking of investigation and fraud and infringement and all that jazz, HOW ARE YOU FARING WITH THE CLICK FRAUD LAWSUIT THAT MICROSOFT SLAPPED YOU IN THE FACE WITH?
Should I bake you a cake with a file in it? Let me know.
