I remember when WoT first went live, Payspan used to save the passwords etc ( for ease of use ), I made more than one post about his at the time, what I want to know is this, did payspan DELETE those passwords or not ?

so to make this simple, if you bought gold through the WoT site there's no possible issue? (unless you also went to the playspan site and made a separate playspan account)

Haha.

Good thing playscam thinks I'm an identity thief and wouldn't accept my card that every other online service accepts.

It saved me from the real identity thieves. :Smile_veryhappy:

Remove any and all of my information from this site. I do not want a simple ban. I want my account PRUNED from the data-base.

I will be contacting PS and the BBB.

thanks for the time.

I don't remember ever giving PlaySpan my e-mail or even creating a password to use it. . .I just pay through paypal when PlaySpan asks for payment. . .what am I missing here?

Paypal payments are safe as the only one with your personal info is paypal.

Its like giving money to your friend with a checking account and he writes the check to pay for your stuff.

Yeah, I was confused when I got the email because I don't recall ever using the Playspan Marketplace. The only thing's I've ever used it for are WoT and MWO purchases, and thier email said I hadn't used it in over a year so it wasn't MWO.

Were the beta pre-orders done through Playspan Marketplace?

Same situation here. . .though didn't City of Heroes and City of Villains use Playspan?   <---which would make sense that it was over a year ago since I left CoH/CoV a year and half ago.

If you want your info removed from Playspan's database, you should probably be contacting them, not WoT. Not that they'll be able to do what you ask, business financial transaction records are -required- to be kept for a certain number of years in case of an audit.

If you bought gold through our payment service, you're fine. This is purely an issue with the Playspan Market place and not with our own payment services.

Playspan through Paypal is also safe - this, as said before, has only to do with if you created an account with Playspan Marketplace.

Maybe? I'd always thought NCSoft billed those directly. But if not, that could be it. I briefly played CoH as well, but quit a couple months after CoV came out.

EDIT: According to a news post HullBuster posted in another tread, which has now been trashed by the mods... (good job finding the info HullBuster, GREAT job trashing a thread with relevant info mods. :Smile_trollface-3: ) EvE previously used Playspan Marketplace. So that's probably my old transaction.
