September, 2012 - more CHASE QUICKPAY scams
October, 2012 - two $400 "in-process" QP transfers fail

-- Amazon's initial approval of a code transfer is no longer reliable.
-- Codes can be bought and traded before Amazon has a final verification that the purchase method is legit.
-- Amazon later cancels and reclaims fraudulently obtained codes.

-- It also appears possible to enable a transfer reversal, possibly via the original sender making a false claim to Amazon (a la PayPal).

re: 2013 SCAM Warnings - Chase Quickpay and AMAZON -also- ACCOUNT HACKS

Made several trades for Amazon recently. The funds appear to be credited and it good standing. Any idea amount the amount of time this reversals have typically been taking place? or more specifically what was the longest amount of time between a complete trade and a reversal. I'm wondering at what point I can feel safe about the amount of funds I have already received.

Mine (100$) was cleared for 2-3 days before amazon took funds back. It was with someone you traded with (jimbo5672 - biffjenkins on lock). We spoke after your traded with him... he got 2 other people, but feel like amazon may have gotten wise to him reversing them or something because half of mine are still cleared & there were only holds put on ArmenH's (150$) and ClemsonFTW's. (300$) Assuming there's will disappear completely too, but maybe not. Maybe cause you traded right after us, amazon wasn't letting him reverse any more or something...

You might want to add up everything you've received & double check 1 didn't slip through the cracks.. For me, there was no notice from amazon. It was just gone. I had done a bunch with different people & if I didn't write everything down, I might have missed it.

Re: 2013 SCAM Warnings - Chase Quickpay and AMAZON -also- ACCOUNT HACKS

There has been a recent deluge of 2+2 accounts hacked as a result of password guesses.

They had weak passwords such as 123456, 4444, the same as the username, etc.

These compromised accounts, as old as 9 years with as many as 16,000 posts, were used to scam fellow 2+2ers and are permanently banned.
There is no recourse and no justification for losing control of an account in such a manner.



The following 2+2 accounts were recently hacked via weak passwords:

PaperEmpire - $7k Lock theft
surfdoc - $790 Netspend theft
Zamees - $3k Lock scam
gimmetheloot - $2k MoneyBookers theft
babar86 - was hacked and used to PM phony trade references for Zamees and surfdoc

Re: 2013 SCAM Warnings - Chase Quickpay and AMAZON -also- ACCOUNT HACKS

If someone sends me money on Quickpay and subsequently Chase send me a message that my funds have cleared, are they able to reverse it?
