Diablo III RMAH Issues

A thread on the Diablo III forums has a complaint from a user who claims to have been charged $149.99 for an item in the Real-Money Auction House for Diablo III after bidding on an item they say was posted at $0.00. They offer evidence to support this claim as well indications that the bug they encountered is still occurring. On a semi-related note, this thread has the account from a user claiming to have lost a Battle.net balance of $200.00 after changing the region on their account, while this one is from someone who says they called the FBI to report Blizzard for wire fraud, alleging having never received a $49.99 payment for an item they sold. These threads have attracted a lot of attention from users, but so far have received no official "blue" comments from Blizzard. Thanks Joao and Blend Games.

I have seen auctions for 0.0 before. Didn't bid on them, because I strictly sell on the RMAH and they looked fishy.

Yup. Anyone who is familiar with the RMAH knows that it's not even possible to list an item for less than $1.25 (actually not sure if it's $1.25, but I am 100% certain it is at least $1, since that is Blizzard's cut regardless). If you see an item listed as $0.0 then it is either bugged or lagging and not updating properly.

As for the other guys; The guy losing his B.net balance really sucks. If he is telling the truth, he should have been smarter about his move, though there is absolutely no reason why anyone should lose their B.net balance just because they moved out of their original region. It's not that hard to convert USD to EUR or GBP, my credit card does it automatically whenever I order something from Europe, as does PayPal. There is no excuse for such an oversight.

The other one who claims he never got paid... well, http://i45.tinypic.com/20hu4c1.jpg
