- What should I do if my 16-digit paysafecard has been used without my permission?
If you suspect that your 16-digit paysafecard has been used without your permission, you can protect your remaining credit by blocking it here. If you suspect that you have become a victim of fraud, you should contact the police immediately; we can provide the police with all of the relevant information. If none of these scenarios apply to you, please contact us at email@example.com and attach a legible copy of your 16-digit paysafecard. Don't forget: Keep your 16-digit paysafecard safe and do not pass it on to unauthorised third parties.
- What does "processing" mean? And how long does a payment remain in "processing"?
Once you click on "Pay" in the payment panel, the transaction amount is sent to the online shop. The transaction amount is usually available in the online shop after a couple of minutes.
In exceptional cases, such as the result of technical problems, your payment cannot be completed and the transaction amount will be credited back to you (the amount will be available to you again within a couple of minutes).
- I have been locked out of my computer and I receive a notification demanding a payment using paysafecard to regain access to it. What do I do?
Important: If you have received such a notification to regain access to your computer, this is a scam! paysafecard is never used by the police or any government authority as a payment method. The fact that you have received this message on your computer means that it has been infected by a virus. Never enter a paysafecard PIN in an attempt to regain access to your computer! Your computer will remain infected by the virus even after you enter a paysafecard PIN and you will simply lose the balance of the paysafecard PIN. Please contact a computer specialist in order to remove the virus. Further information on the subject of security can be found here.
If you have already purchased a paysafecard and entered the PIN in the relevant field in your computer, you are still able to lock your PIN(s) using this online form. Alternatively, you can call our hotline and use our PIN locking service by pressing 1 on your your phone. You can find the number of our paysafecard hotline here. Please note: A paysafecard PIN can only be locked if the balance of the PIN has not already been used by the perpetrators.
If the complete balance of your paysafecard PIN has already been used, we will be unable to refund or replace it. In this case, we highly recommend you contact the police to file a report. We are happy to answer any questions from the police at the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
