Allofmp3 Pissed Off At Credit Card Companies; Plans To Fight Back

from the no-surprise-there dept

Yesterday, we mentioned that Visa had dumped Allofmp3, saying it would no longer process credit cards for the site. Today, Mastercard followed suit. This has Allofmp3 a bit angry, saying that they will do whatever possible to get credit card processing turned back on. They point out, once again, that they have never been convicted of any illegal activity, and previous investigations have shown them to be legal. Of course, just because you're legal, doesn't mean that a credit card company has to process your transactions.

    asking for it

    looked at the payment options listed on the site and here is what it says:
    The minimum one-time payment by credit card for the service is $10.
    If for some reason the site is unable to provide you the service, you will be refunded the remainder of your balance within 7 business days after you apply for such refund.

    This is EXACTLY why the company got banned from credit cards and any business that has practices like these should get banned. Minimum payment for something that I NEVER got? Are you people insane? I can only guess how many complains both Visa and Mastercard got from customers that never got their refunds back.

    Sorry but allofmp3.com was just begging for what happened.
