    Receiving false cashback?

    Well, heres the story.

    Other night i was signing up for O2 home broadband for my dad's office. I went through topcashback to get him £100 discount. I get to the final stage of the order, entering back accnt and debit info. At this point it decided either the info didnt match or it didn't like it. I dont have a clue why it didnt work..

    Anyway..

    Today i recieved an email from TCB regarding my cashback tracking, thats fine i thought as ive just bought a payg mobile. I check TCB and there is £100 also for broadband.

    Em.. what?

    It'll probably change to zero at some stage along the line - I've had that happen before. But there's a slim chance you might get it, I've had that happen before too with insurance that I didn't actually take out in the end...good luck!

    As already stated, this will soon track to £0 before it becomes payable.

    Ok good. In the 1 in a mill chance it doesn't zero out, and it pays out, is it my obligation to pay it back? Can i get in any sort of trouble?

    nope, you did nothing wrong + there is no way to repay it

    The same thing happened to me and it did pay even though the contract was never taken out

    nah ive had quite a few orders cancelled from various places and still received the cashback...........not saying youll get this, as they pick it up but some retailers dont.......no morals on the subject here:)

    Im sure I read someone that if its been paid theres nothing they can do about giving it back to the company?

    I dont know for sure as its never happened to me sadly lol
