I noticed several Black Desert charges that I can't explain ($1.50 on 2/23, $.60 and $.90 on 2/19); anyone else?  Any idea what it's for?

Because it is how hackers start taking money out of your account.  Just want to be sure, and make sure that the devs are aware if it's appropriate.

While there is a very slight chance those are legitimate. You should freeze or cancel that card immediately since they look like card validity tests.

Ignore the deadheads of the forum..

If you need explanations as to why hidden charges are taken, i'd confront them about it. There should only be the price of the pre order you've purchased, no more than that.

I'm not bashing you, I'm bashing this wonderful community of bright and thoughtful players. You should do a sweep for malware.

Open up a ticket.  It could be just charges that test if your card was working, but still really odd there were 3 different charges.

Nope, Didn't receive any extra charges just the pre-order charge. Strange, you should contact the support and call your bank so you don't get scammed.

Considering we are dealing with a company that protects your information on a secure site (account) with nothing more than a password. That same password also being used on the forums. They obviously don't care about your information at all.

Because that is how banks and hackers took your money. Like the rest of victims, they all think like you, just small amount.

The problem is banks and hackers took small amount of large amount of people and it ends up to be millions each month.

If you don't do anything, they will continue to take more money each month in the same amount. Nice job being hack and still feel like it's nothing, you are the best victim they could hope for.

Screenshot or it didn't happen. Black out any personal info, I'd just like to see whether it is legit Daum Games Europe B.V. taking money from your account, and not some "Duam Gems Europe" or any other obvious impersonator.

At the moment, you are just making accusations without proof.

These might be service fees if you didn't  pay in US dollars or Euros.

Could be, test charge is often they deposit and withdraw the same amount of money.

I am assuming you mean authorization charges? If the payment system puked on itself it's a possibility but generally cards that are stolen are tested with low dollar transactions before they go ham. No legitimate authorization would do it 3 times for different amounts as that could trigger fraud shutdown.

I just checked.  I got charged 90 cents.  The charge is listed as "foreign fee".  This is a day after my purchase of the Conq pack.

Ok, now I'm pissed.

EDIT:  I know it's my bank now, not Daum.  My bad.

Credit cards have no liability for charges. So they are one of the safest methods (over debit, PayPal, bank transfer, etc). Basically if you pay with something via "cash" over credit that is when you have the risk.
