    This topic is degenerating into off-topic trash. First post with screenshot has huge concerns all over it and I hope KaKao finds a new payment method for their own sake.

    I contacted support and reported this as identity thief already. Theres loads of other posts like this in the Website Support section in this forum. I posted here in General to make people aware of security concerns.

    Attitude? I've no problem them calling or emailing me and discussing recent transactions.
    In what way are these methods acceptable to any standard, outside of India?
    Not illegal here. This is NA, the method of verification they're asking, is actually illegal in some USA states if there is no email encryption. This is simply barbaric.
    And I'm letting others here on the forum to know not to send such personal information to prevent identity theft, which should be common sense, for anyone in NA anyway.

    Read my post and your question will be self-evident. Further, I asked if there was any dispute, and she said no, and was surprised what happened. I told her about the shit these EU people are requesting and we both agree like any responsible human being, this is some identity theft scam. If paymentwall hires a scammer, its all over. If they get hacked, its all over. I'm not putting myself, or any family member in that position. Their policy is trash, and KaKao needs to form another payment system.

    @Abarrane I've been using Paypal this whole time, with the exceptions my debit card a few times when things were on sale.
    I'm 27, my birthday was coming up so my mother lent me her card to get whatever online under $50.
    So I bought this on Amazon, no problems.

    Ordered a pizza from Dominos, no problems.
    Bought $10 for some perals in BDO, Transaction Failed. That was last month. So yesterday I used my paypal to order $10 in pearls and I got that email, requesting a front & back HD copy of my Driver's License, a copy of my mother's bank statement, and an HD photo of the front & back of my mother's credit card.
    This only happens when there is a dispute on a transaction, which there wasn't.No email encryption, no privacy seal in the email, sketchy long EU email not even greeting my by my name, or anything that identifies me, just, "Hi".
    All this started when BDO added "Gift" pearl shop items into the game. This payment system is being operated like some idiot 19 year old kid is doing it.
    I sent a ticket to the GMs, I doubt they'll do anything. This paymentwall bs is going to end up costing them more money than "securing". I wouldn't DREAM of sending anyone photographs even remotely related to this sensitive information, unless its a HUGE emergency going to my bank, and the email had a privacy seal and was encrypted.
    Already put Paymentwall listed as SPAM in my email. As long as Paymentwall is around, I'm never giving this company another $1.

    ATTENTION! ..edit... !

    My Response
    WAT!?  You want an HD photo of the FRONT & BACK of my ID, and a PHOTO OF THE CREDIT CARD?!
    There isn't even a privacy policy seal on this email! And this is coming from some sketchy-looking "support+2156678.0BEBA0@paymentwall.com" email.
    This has ALL the red flags of identity theft!

    This is America buddy, we don't do this crap here, keep that in Europe! I'm not sending my card or identity to some sketchy email to some other country in the EU. I'm never giving "KaKao" money again as long as PaymentWall is around.

    This is insane!
    And I've been here since Beta with 230+ Hours logged in, and paid around $400+ so far!
    What the actual -----????

    I remember reading a while back, its actually illegal to request customers to send sensitive data like this over a non-encrypted email.

  13. SoggyCow added a post in a topic You need to stop pearl trading.   

    I strongly disagree. Peals in exchange for putting stuff on the market is great - makes the developer and publisher lots of money.
    Them making money is great because all this does is further the life and quality of the game. PA is doing a complete rework of BDO, increasing texture quality and 3D models which is already awesome. It takes money to create content. If they sold PEN Kzarka on the market for $2500 each, I wouldn't mind them actually selling items that way.
    Star Shititzen sells "in stock" ships for $15,000. BDO can do the same because its their game.

    Family Name in Chat
    When I am in Normal/Party/Guild/Channel/Server Chat, I don't know who I am talking to 95% of the time.
    It makes no sense to make everybody be known by 12 different names!
    Character name is good for naming a character itself, but in chat, its insanity.

    I was about to post about this; making the Family name your chat name.
    +1 I hope this gets addressed, because I don't know who I am talking to 98% of the time.
