This company deals in Online virtual money for the major MMORPG's. They promise to deliver virtual gold, credits (game money) in exchange for real money. This promise is for a turnaround of 24 hours. They also boast of having over 10,000 clients and are powersellers with Ebay and are a "valuable client" of paypal. However, what they fail to do is either deliver the money, or provide warning that the your monies could be sitting in their accounts for over 10 days +.

There is no recourse with companies like this, as in actuality the game companies frown upon the exchange of virtual cash.
However Ebay and Paypal openly allow this exchange as it fuels revenue for them. For customers who are let down, paypal cannot protect you as the service/product is virtual. So in effect the company can actually take your real money and never deliver at all.

Be warned www.oofay.com is one of those companies, and what it amounts to is not virtual but very real theft.

    Thank you for posting this comment, I too have been victim to this company, but actually i received no money at all.

    I am taking this matter further and have sought advice as to the legal position of ebay and paypal in providing crooks like these the platform to rip off customers.

    Too many people get taken in by these often foreign companies promising services they can never fulfil upon.

    Its good to see someone taking a stand.

    I suggest you also go to this link:

    http://www.mmocitizen.com/?p=11

    We should all stand against these companies and treat them as the criminals they quite obviously are.

    I had really high hopes for this company. At first, they delivered a couple hundred gold and i was really excited. but after a few days, about a third of it still didnt show up via email or face to face. So i Emailed them asking for some communication on what was going on. and then Emailed again..after about three emails with no replies, i called. And after 20 phone calls, some woman picks up the phone and tells me that they had already sent the gold, so i should definately check my mail box more closely!
    24 hours go by..and still no gold sitting in my mail box and nobody calling to let me know what the deal was.

    long story short, i got ripped off by almost 700 gold. They are now not returning any of my emails or phone calls and have sworn up and down that they have already sent it. Please, if you are looking into buying money from them...do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Otherwise youre gunna be practically giving away free money to them.

    I've had a similar experience to Tiana. I was emailing all the time, getting responses back saying that i'd had my gold, but i had'nt.

    Eventually i just got tired and gave up. I had no option as paypal and ebay were not helping.

    Dont fall into the trap of having these guys take your real money in the hope of virtual money. You just wont get it.

  • Yo Chaf,

    I've been waiting the same amount of time as you i think for less money, 2000g.

    These chinese gold thieves cant make good on what they offer, and if your lucky you just get excuse after excuse or if not, as now in my case - silence.

    Something should be done.

    Well im the latest in what seems a lomg line of people being ripped off, with no possible recourse to this company. Our laws are powerless to stop them. It's time the people stood up to these theif's. I for one am not going to take it lying down and will do what i know best to web sites the piss me off. If i can stop their trading for periods of time then im saving people their hard earned cash.

    I suggest we all begin to re-double our efforts.

    This post is just a few short days long and is already growing with people being ripped off.

    If we look at the money we've lost and calculate the losses of others, we will have a stronger position.

    I have posted my complaint to the originator of this thread and i suggest we petition ebay and paypal also.

    I am from the United States and will be seeking legal recource of ebay and paypal who allow profiteering to occur from its western customers in support of this chinese (possibly mafia run) business.

    I am also writing to news groups in the hope that they will broadcast on Television a warning.

    10 million WoW customers, is incredible as a market for these thieves, but think of all the other MMO games they are targetting.

    10,000,000 players on just one game.

    Countless hundreds of thousands more for other MMO's will be getting ripped off.

    I've used a few of these virtual gold companies in the past, not received a bad service, sometimes late tbh. i tried these guys out to see what they were like, as prices seemed okay.

    Anyway, they stole my money and never got back to me. wtf? How can they get away with this?

    Does anyone know how i can get my $40 back?

    So far so good, little slow and akward, but they have sent me 400 out of 1500 in 1 day and keep in contact with me. If you threaten and keep on them they seem to come through. I told them to deliver some now or refund me and if not i would file charges however possible, and contact all their money people along with many others.

    Scott,

    As the originator of this post i'm finding these mails very interesting.

    I have sent a link to www.oofay.com informing them of their unhappy customers and as to how suprised i was, that so many have found this one website, in such a short time - to use it it to complain.

    www.oofay.com responded by stating:

    "We have 10,000 clients, if you are unhappy we'll give you a 60% discount the next time you trade"

    I'm a bit worried by this promise, as I actually got ripped off by them, so what exactly is 60% off of losing all your money?

    I used them as well, and received about half of the purchased 700 gold. This i got on the same day that i bought it, some hours after the purchase. They blamed the lack of gold on a huge demand and currently too small supply on their part, and promised to deliver the rest of me as soon as they had farmed it.

    That was Friday 1st of February.. Ive talked to them on the live chat, email and phone multiple times since then (they actually called me up a couple of times). I told them I would do a chargeback on my Mastercard (payed for through paypal), and report them as scammers to the paypal partner program if they could not deliver soon, or at least give a concrete ETA on its delivery.

    Right now I'm still waiting and hoping, and not sure if they are a scamming site or the gold farmers have supply problems.

    To test out my theory i bought a smaller amount of gold from IGE (www.ige.com) as well as they are supposed to be very reputable... I have still not recieved ANY GOLD from them, only automatic emails "sorry we couldnt deliver when you weere online, please contact us again the next time youre online and we will try to deliver within one hour".

    So either ive been scammed twice by two seperate companies, or there is a widespread shortage in the gold available from gold farmers these days... Anyone else know more about this?

    Chinese New Year - lmao!

    Seriously though, these guys are scammers.

    WoW gold is actually a piece of piss to make these days, and tbh i only used these guys as i was lazy.

    Ive been playing this game for nearly 3 years now, and if anyone wants free tips on how to make gold then email me.

    In fact im seriously considering making a website for pissed off people like us to freely trade nuggets of information on levelling, gold and trade skills.

    Maybe then, these low life scammers and thieves will ###ing ride a bike to a toy factory like their 1 billion other neighbours and make some honest money!

    I have been waiting for 3 weeks to get gold from them. They promised 5 min delivery and boasted 30,000 gold available on my server. I have had live chats with them, talked to them on the phone, and been promised a refund numerous times. They barely speak english and dont ever seem to understand anything. Now i cant get a hold of anyone through email, chat, or by phone. They keep giving excuse after excuse why i havent gotten my gold. If they were an american company they would be done by now with all the people that would be suing their ###. Do not buy from them! it is a scam.

    This company is hosteling people for their money..

    I bought 500 gold for the game Worlf of Warcraft and after 48 hours (their maximun deadline for delivery) without reciving my game gold I started sending them e-mails to their service mail asking what was going on, but I never got any reply. So I tried theis service hotling, but it didn't work. Then I tried to contact them by using the MSN adress they supply on their site, but they never came online. By now I was getting really pissed off so I started calling the phonenumber on the site, but no matter what time during the day (and night) I tried calling them they never piched up. (wonder how much it has cost me making international calls trying to nreach them)

    5 days, no gold and no contact (other that the vertification call I got from them aboute 20 minutes after my order) I logged in on my PayPal account and started a dispute, asking them to immedietly deliver my gold or give me a full refund. 24 hours later I got a full refound...

    This doesn't mean thet I didn't lose any money - 10 internetional calls (and no anwser) isn't cheap..

    Their service stinks, you'll never get any reply from them - only by going through more powerfull people will you be able to get you money back.

    Thic company clearly benefits from peolpes ignorence, taking their money but never delivering anything.

    Don't let them take your money, take your buisness elsewhere. I recomend http://wwww.goldsoon.com/default.aspx

    Hmm, I received all my gold 2 days ago. 4000 gold with an apologie stating that due to the New Year's festivals in china, most powergamer didnt work for a week or 2 creating a huge queue for gold.

    I'm satisfied but still, events like these should have been planned or at least they should have warn customers on Website. Still, I got my gold from oofay.
