Chargeback Disabled Account

Scoutconnor1

I received an email this morning saying that my account has been disabled because a chargeback I made.
I did not make a chargeback.
The only thing that I can think of is a voucher I purchased from Htfdeals.com (the one year card I had added to the account). If that was charged back, it means htfdeals.com did something fishy.
Is there anything that can be done?

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂

You will need to get in touch with the payments directly using the online contact form since they deal with all issues relating to chargebacks and disabled accounts. Don't worry, they will be able to get it sorted for you. 

If you get an automated email reply back directing you to the community or help pages, you need to reply directly to that email (even if its from no-reply) and one of the customer services agents will get back to you as soon as possible.

Hi,

 

I'm having the exact same problem and I also bought an one year gift card from htfdeals.com.

 

My case number is 00728261.

 

I've also contacted htfdeals for clarification on the matter.

 

My original username is fmocastro (the account has been suspended so I can't login with it)

 

Thank you,

 

Felipe

As you might expect, I'm having the same problem as well. I've sent HTFDeals an email and have yet to hear back. 

 

My case number is 00728283.

 

Thanks!

Same issue here! I bought the 12-month gift subscription from HTFDeals.com. Spotify accepted the code when I posted it to my account. Why the disabling now?! This is obviously not my regular account.

If you get in touch with the link I posted above the Spotify team will be able to look into it for you on a one-to-one basis. 😉

I have used the form. I think it's ridiculous that there isn't a phone number to call. I despise online companies who have no phone customer service. This could've been resolved with a 5 minute phone call but here I sit waiting idly for responses over email. Bad form and bad customer service.

 

I just wanted to add to the tally of users who are experiencing the same exact problem. Spotify has my CC information on file so why automatically disable my account and not fall-back to the CC on file and let me know something funky happened with the gift subscription as opposed to patently disabling my account.

 

I had to create a NEW account just so I could tell you about my ACTUAL account.

 

Bad form...

Same here, and it is incredible that I need to create a new account just so I can use the forum. Why not simply disable the premium level until the issue is solved instead of disabling the full account.  

 

I had to use the reset password contact option...

Case # 00728456

 

I am hoping this issue is solved, otherwise I guess we would need to request a chargeback to HTF directly, but I am surprised this happened after the prepaid code was accepted.

my account was disabled as well--annoying. The 12 month card was accepted, worked for 3 days, and now disabled. Anyone have a link to report this? Thanks.

Any idea if my case (and the others) have been "chased up?"
It is going to be a long drive home this evening without Spotify.

Are these case numbers being worked on as posted in this thread or as posted to the Contact Form?! Here's my case: 00728379. I'm not sure how this is being handled (aside from appallingly) so I figured I should toss my hat(case) in the ring as well.

 

My advice?

 

1.) Get phone support!!

2.) If a payment option fails, turn off premium for an account DON'T FULLY DISABLE IT!

3.) GET PHONE SUPPORT!

 

This whole situation is dumb.

Try to give them some time, I'm sure once a resolution is reached for one of the cases they'll apply it across all of them as they turn up.
It is just figuring out what to do and how they are going to approach it takes time.
Although it has been almost 12 hours, I appreciate the help the moderators are providing in this thread to let us know that they are doing what they can.
