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.

    My balance disappeared from Allofmp3

    I've bought from Allofmp3 for about 6 months now. When Visa withdrew its services I refilled my balance via Xrost, using the "Click & Buy" option. So far so good.
    A week ago my Allofmp3 balance went from $2.20 to - $42.80. $45.00 gone just like that. Repeated requests for explanation from Allofmp3 got repeated replies "we have recieved chargeback from xrost. Please contact with support xrost". After I figured out what this message was trying to say, I contracted both Click & Buy and Xrost asking where my money's gone - no reply, what a surprise. And I no longer have access to refilling my balance at Allofmp3, its been barred.
    Very disappointed. I loved the site, its ease of use, its choice of music, its file quality. Now I'm wondering whether I've been ripped off. Though how being put into the negative with only a small balance remaining benefits Allofmp3 I'm not sure.
