I have a potential £2,900 exposure myself so feeling kind of nervous. Not sure if I want all £2,900 to go or about half that figure!..

Wonder if West Ham have.

I only applied for the opening ceremony. I wanted to apply for some athletics and football, but go on holiday.
#3
nothing taken here yet-there was a chap on breakfast telly who emailed in to say he had checked his online account and ten grand had been taken from his account!

oO....Blimey, how many days/tickets is that for ?!
#5
I've checked my account and there's nothing been taken yet. I haven't heard of anyone I know who has had money taken so far.
#6
Nothing gone here yet, I did expect them to take it first day possible. Only £300ish worth of tickets but thats a lot of money to me!

I dont really mind them holding it, its just if they hold it and then I dont get any tickets i'll be annoyed

Yes, I thought they'd take our money as soon as they could too, but perhaps this just means we haven't got any tickets!

That would be quite funny if you got everything you requested. What did it say in the T&C's about rejecting tickets or reselling.

I've applied for weighlifting, archery, shooting and cycling - should get most of them I hope with the cycling being the tough one.
#9
I can't believe I'd get none of my tickets, so I assume they are not taking all of the money today. Which is odd - the interest on all this money would pay for quite a few batons/javellins/little bits of plasticine that see if you have stepped over the line.
#10
Nothing yet :(
#11
My impression was the money would go regardless of how many tickets you get, even if its 0.

Am I wrong and its a case of in theory you know if only £20 goes then you've only got one £20 for example? If it all goes you get every ticket etc?

They only take money for events you've been sucessful in getting tickets for.
#13
Just realised I paid by credit card so the amount was never going to appear on my online account list today! Idiot!.. I could call credit card company but maybe I'll wait til I hear of a few others having had their money taken!..
#14
i think they can take the money at any time upto june 10th or summit like that.
#15
Nothing today, anyone else?
#16
Nothing today (I am checking the right card now)!
#17
think ive had about 250 taken from a possible 460/570
#18
Nothing yet:(
#19
as i only applied for one event will know what tickets i have though very doubtful if i get them-its athletics on a sat evening which includes the 5000m mens final when mo farrah will be running for gold-all fingers crossed as i am an optomist
#20
I have a potential £3500 spend. As of yet nothing has been taken.
[mod]#22
I saw on TV that one bloke went mad ordering for virtually everything to hedge his bets..........if they are accepted he has a bill of £35,000 X)
#23
I don't mean just that the article has the same thrust, I mean that it reads like they used a slightly corrupted quote from the start of the thread!

justingalore



I reckon so!!
#25
I'm over the moon this morning, received my tickets for the Olympic Stadium. 2 tickets for the 100M final, 2 for the Discus final and two tickets for West Ham v Birmingham City. X)
#26
Congratulations Greg! I'm still waiting for some bank account movement, and I totally agree they've been lurking on our thread
#27
Congrats Greg. However as the official website says they're not issuing confirmation emails until 24 June I'd look closely at those tickets.
#28
Money out my account today! Definitely the Semi Final of the football plus one athletics session. Fingers crossed its the 100m final!
#29
congrats!
#30
Been keeping my eye on this thread but no one added anything for a few days. I'm still waiting for anything to go missing on mine. I keep getting my hopes up when i see an email from London 2012, but then they are either letting me know they've not got through all applications yet, or pushing the ParaOlympics.
#31
Ok so had 36 taken from a "theatrical producer" so say barclaycard (no more details til Monday) does that mean ticketmaster? Anyone know?

Surely that can't be it!.. £2900 bid and all I get is either one football session (semi final) or one archery session!
#32
Definitely 2012 - Barclay called me today about all the transactions on the account yesterday! Carphone Warehouse. Anyway, they said the £36 was 2012 and they are seeing a lot come through. Check your pending transactions rather than complete ones.
#33
Still no movement here, but good news for you Justingalore.

They said they reckon most will be completed by the 31st, i'm starting to get a bit concerned as i guess nothing will happen on Bank Holiday Monday
#34
Good news? Only getting 1% of my order (thus far). I'd rather have nothing and be in first place in the second round ballot!
#35
Half of people debited:

I cant even log in anymore, just keep auto refreshing my page. I'm coming to terms that I might be getting nothing!
#37
Any more news on whether it was legit? My credit card is showing £ 150 'pending' from (I am told by Barclaycard) a "threatical producer" - yet I bid for £ 2500 of Olympic tickets so I am same boat as you.... however, the £150 just doesn't add up to me. Unles it is £ 35 x 4 plus £10 postage? Well, we'll see next week

#39

#40
