So I set up my SE account and registered my FFXI and FFXIII schwag to get the codes, and then went to set up Click and Buy. Fairly easy process after a bit of trial and error...charge my card the $2.40 yada yada yada. All set and ready to go...
While setting up my character I get an e-mail from my bank (good ol Bank of America).
Your debit card has been deactivated due to suspicious and irregular debit card activity on your account. The fraud department has placed your account on high alert. Please contact us at xxx xxx xxx to confirm your recent transactions and identity.
International Fraud Department
Bank of America
I called my bank and the fraud department has Click and Buy listed as a possible fraudulent company and flags all transactions involving them...unless you are an international banking customer.
Who knows how much of this is true but I just thought it was hella funny that I had to explain to the fraud department that I play a Japanese online game called FFXIV and that they force us to use London based Click and Buy to pay for the game. International cooperation at its best.
