bought credit for my wii u, but forgot till now.

I was wondering about this company too, but then i realized that it's a payment for phone credits on my prepaid handy. Maybe that helps sb. who is also wondering where it comes from. I totally forget that i charged my phone with this online service. It's very confusing sometimes when you see such company names that have nothing to do with the actual company you ordered from.

I rec'd an email saying a top up BV charge will appear...I don't even use paypal. Interestingly, the charge was in British Pounds and I have recently been booking some rentals in Britain...hmmm...I'm not opening any of the links, etc...I knew it was a scam. I will watch my credit card for a charge...if they want to charge my PP account a million dollars I don't care because I don't use Don't you just hate email scammers...

Mine was Tesco Express payment £58.75 First they tried it out on Amazon ads for £0 Then Tesco Then TOP UP BV. 38.50 Bank called straight away. Someone I purchased off online sold credit card details, Fraud squad advised me they have machines that send cv codes to the card number but may take a while to get correct number. Seeing as I only used the card at Xmas 5 months not bad if they get the cv code to go with the credit card numbers they buy. If you see it phone your bank / Paypal straight away.

I had a charge of $259.95 try to go through my visa credit card on September 26, 2018. My cedit card declined the charge, but I have no idea what or who tried to make this charge.

C N Evans on December 12, 2018

Purchased target gift card ($25) in September. Contact company, sent PayPal receipt Where I was charged and they said that was insufficient they needed something else that I mysteriously didn’t have! All looks like I’m out that money.

luthor on January 25, 2019

Kate on September 28, 2019

Larks on April 09, 2020

This website is an absolute scam. You might get a code and get what you paid for but as many have mentioned you will get tons of random charges to your debit card I EVEN USED PAYPAL and they keep charging my debit card. Ridiculous. NEVER USE THIS SITE!!!!

Gaspard on April 25, 2020

Denys Laplante on August 23, 2021

J’ai acheté hier le 22 août une recharge de 100 euros 165$ CAN pour payer une assurance sur un envoi d’argent liquide pour l’achat du vélo que je vends. Je suis à Québec au Canada. La vente du vélo ne s’est pas conclue et j’essaie sans grand succès de récupérer l’argent. Le paiement s’est fait par PayPal.
