A month ago I ordered 3 nintendo wiis from DVDblah. ( http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39961&page=3http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39961&page=3
Their service was appalling, they were not in stock (despite saying they were) and I cancelled, but the payment was stll authorised. The bank authorisation, I understand now, is normal enough, but what really annoyed me is I must have tried 10 times to ring them. I left meny messages stating the urgency (I was worried about my £650 vanishing from the bank) and also several emails. I never got one single reply and I was worried all the way untill the bank reversed the £650 authorisation 10 working days later.
Anyway, about £33 quidco was tracked, I expected it to be declined but I've just checked, and it's now been paid!!! :?
I would dearly love to leave it (as compensation), but I am worried about quidco's cashback abuse policy. It is actually in my girlfriends account and she has over £200 yet to withdraw from quidco.
But I think I should declare that it is a mistake so as not to risk the rest of her money by her account being closed and donated to charity. This would also be the morally correct thing to do. But I don't know how I'd go about doing this??
Also, quidco are very vague about their abuse policy. They say something about "if they suspect..." But I have no idea what defines abuse in thir eyes. I know that they closed a lot of accounts over a recent car insurance cashback that people were clicking though every day. This 30 odd pound of my gf's is a pretty large amount compared to the 10-pence-a-day (or whatever) "fraud".
That said, it is an accident, they surely can't accuse her of fraud can they??
P.S. I'm also a little unsure how quidco will feel about myself and my girlfriend, and also a couple of my friends all using my computer to run their quidco accounts. There are some cashback companies, such as bingo and bookies that we have all taken advantage of. Would quidco consider that abuse?? Or even multiple accounts from the same person, seeing as there are 5 accounts traceable to my IP address, all with similar dates and companies on. They are genuine seperate people though, in fact I have been actively promoting quidco and have encouraged friends to use my PC to take advantage... I would hate it if quidco punished me for this!!
It is something I have never considered until now, but I have heard that quidco don't tell you that you've done anything wrong untill you come to withdraw your money. I'm just worried about the "suspect multiple accounts" bit of their T&Cs. What leads them to suspect multiple accounts? What is the definition of multiple accounts? It's all so vague.
Woah, long post. Sorry and thanks for reading.
Any help will be massively appreciated! :thumbsup:
