Before you spend any credits or gold read this.

I have paid 23 million credits for FV215b 183. 23million disappeared from my account, but I din not receive the tank.  I know how to use carousel filters. The depot also did not show that I have the tank. Store (Black Market page) displayed a message that it is already purchased. Restarting game client including safe mode did not help. I have sent a support ticket but you all know how slow is the support. I tried to reset game cache, and the outcome is that I still don't have the FV215b 183, but now the Black Market shows that I can purchase one as if transaction never happened. The problem is that WG took that 23 million credits. Before you spend credits or gold be prepared for such situation and take screen shots of every step, or you may loose a lot of credits or gold. I won't be surprised if I get a response not earlier than Tue. I'm kind of worried if I get the FV215b 183 or 23M credits back.

TAKE SCREENSHOTS OF YOUR TRANSACTIONS!!!

 

 

UPDATE:

I got response from support. Looks like there are a lot of people affected by this issue and WG is working to solve it across all their game servers.

 

2nd UPDATE:

After 2 days I got the tank.

The bottom line still is: take screenshots of your transactions.

How about just posting this drivel on the support page. IF you aren't lying then they will fix it.

A WOT automated purchase system didn't work correctly?    

 

Well, I am not amazed.    Anymore I expect everything WG to not work first try, and that includes customer supporters.

You're hilarious, OP. You should probably contact the BBB. They definitely scammed you.

As I said in my post I have sent a ticket. The message is: it can happen to anyone, including you, so I advise anyone to take screenshots of transactions to have a proof of transactions.

I'm sure it will be even more hilarious when it happens to you. Right? Don't you realize, that if something happens to one player it may happen to others including you? My post is just and advise to take screenshots of transactions. I had this situation with WG before.

While it's nice of you to warn people, just in case, this is certainly not a scam. What it is, is a click bait thread title.

There's a difference between a scam and an error, nimrod.

I have a bad habit of collecting weird tanks. Sometimes I even play them.

As a new owner, I received mine instantly.

 

If you did purchase one, send in a ticket.

OP is the scam artist.  I had to try to see if he was being truthful.  I now have the tank and got it instantly.  OP was trying to make people buy it.  /s

Why do you offend me? I posted it as an advise for players to screenshot their transactions. It's not the first time I have such problem with WG. How warning potential customers about the issue with a seller makes one a scam artist? Where is the logic of that? So you have never been in a situation where you paid for something and it was not delivered? As long as you are an adult you have been in such situation many times in your life. If you are a kid than it could be a different story of course. How would I benefit from convincing anyone on the forum that I should get something if I would not spend credits for it? It's not up to those who read this post anyway so it would not matter. It is between me and WG. This post is just a warning to get a receipt (or a screenshot in case of WoT).

One more thing. I have 40 more premium tanks than you do, so getting those is clearly not a problem for me. Why would I lie because of one tank for credits, not even gold?

You are a scam artist supporting unfair business practice.
