A few months ago, I wrote about how I was banned from Giftcardmall. I hadn’t tried to place an order since then. Last week, I figured I’d give it a shot and tried to place an order for $500 x 3 cards. Some notes:
- I have changed my IP address since 6 months ago
- I used guest checkout
- I used a new email address
- I used the same credit card
- I used my same home address
I was able to submit my order successfully instead of getting the credit card error like in the past.
About 6 hours later, they called me to verify my identity, my credit card, etc. The rep then told me he’d process the order. I never got another email from GCM since my initial email, which I thought was weird; no shipping email or anything. A week later, I got the 3 gift cards in the mail. SUCCESS!
Either my ban “expired” or something let me back in the door. Since I used the same address and cc, it doesn’t seem that mattered. My advice for you if you’re banned is to try to change your IP address, use guest checkout and a new email address. Then cross your fingers! If you still can’t order, then maybe give it more time…
