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.

    Fraud or Stupidity?

    So you used a $7500+ CC to purchase music from a Russian
    company? With all due respect, use your head. I have a $500-limit card that I use for transactions with untrusted businesses. It's not difficult...

    Having said that, I have not heard of anyone else getting reamed like this. I would look at other transactions and whether the machine that you placed those orders on was compromised.
