One of the rather unique aspects of Blizzard’s action RPG, Diablo 3, is that it comes with a Real Money Auction House. In case you don’t play the game, it’s basically an auction house where players can buy/sell items to other players for real money. Unfortunately not everything in this world is perfect, and Diablo 3’s RMAH is one of them. One particular player by the name of Lowkeylai, sold an item on the RMAH for $186, or so he thought until he realized that the transaction did not actually go through.
Unfortunately not only did he not receive his money, but the item he was selling had disappeared as well. If you thought that this was a simple case of restoring a lost item, it does not appear to be the case. He contacted Blizzard and instead of having his item restored, he was told that the item could not be reinstated and was instead given an apology for the inconvenience caused. He has reportedly decided to report this case to the FBI and the Better Business Bureau, making him one out of many players who have already done so. So Diablo 3 players, has your RMAH experience been satisfactory so far? If you’d like to read the blow-by-blow account, head on over to the Blizzard forums for the details!
