I bought a $25 google play card for my daughter she went to use it they had her put it into a “wallet” account then froze the account. When I called they said I needed to give them my bank info to unlock it. I asked for a refund they said they could not until the account was unlocked.

So basically I gave them $25 and they are holding my money ransom until I will give them bank account details.

This is just s brute force bank account mining scam.

This is a Gift Card. Not a credit account,

AUTHOR: Steve - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Why “MUST” you give your bank account info to google ? Because google says so ?

 

This is a Gift Card. Not a credit account, Why would google need my bank account to use a gift card ?

 

The only reason is to get your bank account in their system so the can suck money out of it.

Not a scam...

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

POSTED: Tuesday, November 26, 2013

 Its not a scam, a debit/credit card MUST go on ANY Google account. Even on Kindles. It just means that your account is not fully setup and you need to finish setting it up and you will be able to use your Google card.
