Bank Blocks World of Warcraft Payments


Users of Halifax bank in the UK who use their account to pay Activision Blizzard for the chance to play Warcraft have a surprise waiting for them. They can’t pay.

Halifax has blamed the situation on the high number of stolen credit cards used to play the game. Simply put, any attempt to pay your bill is blocked by the bank, and every situation needs to be discussed with the bank personally. Some customer service reps are about to have a crash course in the players of World of Warcraft.

On a side note, if you’re going to steal a credit card, why would you use it for a few $10 transactions? Then again, if you’re dumb enough to do it in the first place, it must not be obvious that you could be buying a new plasma.
