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.

 

The hilarious part is you calling it a scam. You've massively over reacted which is why you're getting so much flak.

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!!!

 

As I mentioned to you earlier in another post, if you took a screenshot of the messages in the message center, bottom right of your garage, open a ticket and include it. If they see that they withdrew the 23 million credits and there is no tank in your garage then they will correct it.

If you spent gold, then maybe you could say that it was a scam, even though you'd be mistaken. However, you spent credits. WG does not give a rat's butt about credits.

Hi Adalbertt, you're not alone. This exact same happened to me when purchasing the FV215b 183 on the ASIA Server. Waited hours for it to arrive to no avail. You may notice that you can oddly retrain your British crew members to the FV215b 185 (even though the tank is not in you garage). Like you I've raised a ticket, hopefully they can sort this out.

you do realise a few thousands of people clicked the "purchase" button all at the same time yes?

and in such situations systems may some times fail..

you will get what you bought, no worries..

noone scammed you..

OP is overreacting on this. This happened in mass on RU server and WG came up officially saying they work on fixing it. 

Calling it a scam is just untrue. Saying that "this is not the first time", I suspect of being untruthful too.

OP do you expect messing around in the Black Market. Sometimes there is always tainted goods in the BM as there are no rules. You were warned ahead of time about there being no rules. You expect customer service to help you when you bought tanks from the black market and not the proper premium shop.

LOL!

that would be actually fun.. as long as it doesnt happening to me..

but its true, you can often get screwed in the black market..

 

but then they should at least give you a way to get it back.. through a special mission!

"track down the scammer, blow up their garage, kill the scammer, steal back YOUR tank, escape within 30 seconds before the airstrike..!"

and you get back your tank coming with a unique camo for achieving the mission and a special badge!

I am going out on a limb and going to guess that he is using a mod that does not have the tank model in the carousel.  Kill/remove any/all mods and reload the game and see if it is in the garage.  The simplest issue is most likely the cause

yeah, GTA style.. after all is 7 days with NO RULES..

 

in fact if there are no rules, we should have an option to literally steal a tank from the market as well.. any of them we like..

and there would be a special mission we should achieve to be able to keep it.. else they kill us and they take it back.. and you have an hour ban on your account for stealing the tank but no perma strike point for it..

if you complete the mission you keep the tank, along with a unique camo and a special badge.. and 6 inscriptions "Thug Life!" LOL

GTA was a great game series. Give the guy a wheelie for 7 days and make him do some missions with it. I still think the funniest one was chasing the hurst while it spit out caskets at you or the helicopter and the construction workers saying "wth" and hitting you with pipes.

Yes. WG has everything to find out if the transaction was done correctly and will fix it. The only thing the OP missed is immediate gratification (And gained a bit of frustration too.. (which is one of WG 's favorite minigames)) I bet the tank is in his garage now and the op hasn't posted it yet.
