ga-sale.com www.ga-sale.com or ga-sale / Illegal Chinese Scamming Fraud Company,

1 MT, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I bought an account from GA-SALE.COM off of their website. After 2 days, I tried to call them. The phone rings and rings with no answer, [protected], right off their main website page. So the only way to contact them is via their online chat, which I do. I am told the account I purchased sold last week, but they have a similar account for $30 more. While suspicious, I go ahead and pay the extra $30.

After 3 more days I get an email with the account information. I am able to login and the account was as stated.

The next day the password was changed, and the email to retrieve the password was still set to GA-SALE.COM's email. They said they would change this within 24 hours. I tried again and I am told something is wrong with the account. I called Blizzard and the account was banned. They tried to say the original owner took the account back(GA-SALE.COM). I called the original owner who said he sold the account last year to GA-SALE.COM and does not play WOW anymore. While this could have been a lie, I have seen other posts saying GA-SALE.COM is not reputable and is a SCAM.

In the end, they did refund me $180, so I lost $110 total. Just a small enought amount to let it go, but still a scam either way. I feel posting about this is the only thing I can do to get even and make them change their domain name or whatever. What a fraud.

    My experience with ga-sale.com was awful aswell. Don't use these guys! I've used a lot of these websites and the only one I haven't had a problem with is eliteleveling.com

    Don't buy accounts, period, unless you know you're buying it from the person who created the original account. Most account-selling services sell HACKED accounts - as in, they break into a player's personal information, change the passwords, transfer the characters on the players account to NEW accounts, then sell said accounts to the buyer.

    The thing is, the player notices almost immediately that their account has been hacked and reports it. Blizzard then reverses the transfer within 2 weeks and bans the account that the buyer bought. The only person who loses on this deal is the account buyer: the player gets his toons back, the hacker/seller gets their money and walks away laughing, and the buyer ends up with a banned account and his money taken away.

    I know, because my account got hacked and my characters were sold - literally overnight. I got them all back. Don't buy accounts. If you want to play WoW, then do it the honest way and level your own character. It's not really that hard - it takes maybe 2 or 3 weeks to get a character to 70.

    Yes i agree with all the comments above. This too has happened to me. I think the main muck-up is that we be honest and tell blizzard that we purchased the account, in doing so leads the banning that is unexpected.

    I bought an account from ga-sale, 1st one was lost within a week, then i got another one replaced and that lasted me no more than 3 months. It is utterly hopeless trying to explain to these guys, litteraly they have no grammer punchuation so clearly the company is not based in the US as they say.

    Do not buy WoW accounts... not from ga-sale anyways lol I hope we all learned a lesson.

    Lexus,

    Apparently this site is making bulk brands.

    accountol.com
    ga-sale.com
    accountbar.com
    mygamesale.com
    powerlevelings.com
    mmogcart.com

    All these sites are the same thing, ripping customers off, bannings accounts. HERE IS A TIP FOR ANYONE. IF YOU GO TO THEIR LIVE CHAT, and THEIR ENGLISH IS POOR, DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. ASK THEM A SIMPLE QUESTION SUCH AS how many states are there or name the capital of california or who is john mccain or who is abe lincoln. They will say something like if you dont believe we are american, we cannot do business with you. Live chat sells me on RMT sites and unforuntely the truth of the matter is there are only a few out there you can trust, and one is not the ga-sale network.

    For secure account sale/buy I recommended www.gamepal.com - It's the only reliable I've heard off, but dont expect to get high amount of cash for your account though.

    I am not sure on the buying of accounts and how this website works, but www.top-account.com was mentioned above as the same buisness. I just sold my wow account to these guys with no problems, got the money in my paypal acount within 24 hours. So if your selling the account, I would have to say at least top-account.com is legit.

    Sorry. I'm pretty sure that it's against the ToS to sell your account. All the items/characters/etc in game are the sole property of Blizzard.

    I am sorry you got ripped off though. It might not be too late to dispute the charges with your credit card company.

    STOP GIVING THE GOLD/XP FARMERS BUSINESS!!

    This is my transcript from dealing with top-account.com which is one of their alias'. This company is ###ic and does not adhere to their quotes and do not live in the US. Their owner's name is Su Bin, so I asked to speak with Su Bin. Oddly enough, "he doesnt here atm"... lol. Anywho, my company sales accounts to them, but i'm fet up with it. Their quotes are never correct and because of this I have lost several hundred dollars over the past week or so. If I, as a seller, do not want to deal with them... I know that no regular customer would. They give you the run around and try their hardest to translate your text. I said something perverted right in the middle to see what they would do. I expected them to end the conversation right at that moment, however they did not. In fact they continued wanting to purchase my well geared 70 warlock worth $200 for a mere $120... different from their quote of $151. Just don't do business with them... very scandalous!

    I have to say, , that this site was good to me, I sold my account to them, never bought though, i was a little scared at there buying part, but they accualy did give me money after they call you and confirm the account is yours, was on the phone for a hour. and i had to give all the keys and they change the email and what not, and then pay you, i was scared because it was taking so long to answer, but in the end i did get payment to my paypal.

    but now i just got an email from them, with a fake doc, seems to be a password stealer, not looking, i ran it, and.. its from this site, so it seems they have went to bad on me here.

    if anyone has got this and can fix it please write me with subject wow pws please thanks

    I really wished I got some more info on them before I bought my account... So far I am still in the waiting...
    I agree some of them have really broken English. One of the pple I was lucky to land on twice in the help chat was the ID 'Amanda'. This person has near perfect English (if not perfect, I dont recall clearly atm)
    Might wanna ask for this person if your really frustrated with their english (they can swap operators for you if present). Instead of their rituary 'please wait xxx days more' (again), I actually got an explanation from this operator explaining 'why' (similarly this acc was taken and their searching for another account) and the maximum amount of days I MIGHT have to wait.

    A part of me is hoping that if their able to continue their business without being seriously sued by ALL their customers... >.>;; I just hope bad dont turn out to worst.
    One thing that keeps me a tad bit calmer is that they have an account with paypal (dunno how MANY tho...) and paypal itself is really secure. This time around paypal actually called me 5min later I made a payment to ga-sales cause I hadnt used this account in a LONG time and I guess their security got alerted. Same with fraud their pretty tight.

    Aside from the ga-sales customer service phone I suggest you keep note of the first 'confirmation' phone number that they call you with. Its certainly different from that one they posted on the webpage. If something happens I'll most likely give paypal both numbers and all the chat logs I've had.

    Lll here again updating my previous post.
    I ordered an account on 8/21/08 and it is now 9/30/08.

    I did livechat on 8/21/08, 8/24/08, 8/25/08, 8/27/08, 8/29/08, 9/01/08, 9/25/08, 9/30/08. Some chats are 2 times in a day due to waiting for the acc pple to log on (which seems to be the truth cause they always state come a certain time after)
    By this time Im sure some pple would have asked for a refund, I think maybe after a few days I might just do that.

    But atm I am more curious if they will honor their part of the sale. My last livechat concluded with them telling me please wait another 7 days. Couple times they did give me the option of a refund or a wait in couple of days. The wait has been stretched to 1 month and 2 weeks at this point in time.

    All the while I have still kept chat logs saved and will be doing further investigation on my side on refunds or how to enforce chargebacks either through paypal or the card company if indeed I can put a fraud label on them at the time of my final decision.

    Note: Operator Mickey may not be the best of pple to talk to if you are frustrated with your orders. Alot of " :P " emotes are not what you want to see at a time like that. He also put me on hold for the longest which was 30min+. The chat auto-ends after 30min so had to log back in again.

    So far, as to service and understandment this is how I would rate the operators (at least the ones I talked to) Angela being the top because they seem to understand english and polite, and Mickey being the bottom line.

    Amanda>Cathy, Angela, Candy>Sum> Carp>Mickey
