A LM-17 for CC? /w Email from SE

Um…

the StarOnion, LM-17, FFXI Banning, Credit Card Chargeback

This Screen for… CC Expiry? x_x!

A few hours ago, I posted someone duping Kraken Clubs. Although that won’t give you LM17, but apparently… these days, you can get LM17 for using a lot of CC”s on different accounts. Preparing for Rapture launch? :O

Well anyway… one of my LS member got caught and… posted the email, thought I’d share it.

Lets Continue:

It’s been mentioned a few place such as:

I’ve previously paid for… SohMui, Eruki, Roranora, Jayashaya, Ciermel, Tazo, my brother and I…(all separate accounts, lets just say I’ve logged in over 50 accounts on my PC) so I’d definitely would have gotten flagged… so I guess they are looking for a set of other conditions. For one thing, all the above people do not have contact information that is similar to me. :O!

I’m just wondering myself why LM-17. There are so many other numbers they could use such as LM-00 <-- for no money, or LM-1337. I didn't know they ran out of numbers. For one thing 17 and not LM-16 already reveals its not a data size limitations xD They are probably just freaking lazy people. But if I got that stuff, I'd be so upset... :/

    Wow. I hope i don’t find this kind of surprise when i log.
    I currently pay 3 accounts and might go for a 4th…..and really, why SE is so gay about it ? -.-

  2. Maiev says:

    @Jowah

    If you can still login u wern’t flagged. I wasn’t flagged. Maybe multiple CC + China IP = Flagged :D

    and really thanks for droppin by Jowah =) I miss jowah’s appearance XD

  3. Kind of off-topic I suppose, but I wonder why Square Enix is so hellbent on showing the servers in the order they were activated instead of alphabetically. I reside on Unicorn, and I know I’m around halfway down, but yeah.. doesn’t make much sense.

    SE Logic™ strikes again!

    Two things:

    1) I don’t know how much of that mention is a compliment or an insult, but I can guess… ;)

    2) Especially with the message you have on the screencap, LM-17 is a ludicrous thing to do for that — by definition, the account would be gone.

    @Starcade

    dude, i LOVE your blog, ever since GM dave’s blog humor kinda died, I’ve always wanted to look for something more unique! and ur like right there :D

    I mean… your blog content causes an impact no? XD so the ZOMG is just how I’d describe it ;) (at least u get a title named after u on bg :O!)

  6. Maiev says:

    @Kimiko v2

    Hay ty for droppin by again :)

    I think its all part of SE in making the game difficult! their support for PS2 logic is already so hard to comprehend, then there’s broken code randomly, or non-intentional random fixes or unfixes XD

    & read your appreciation entry :) and thanks for doing da same XD

    Whaa I don’t get it really *so complicated for her little mind* :(

  8. Starcade says:

    Just was wondering… :)
