I purchased a Walmart gift card and was able to add it with the stated balance in my account so I completed the transaction. I didn’t intent to use it right away, but after I went back to it later, I found that the balance was zero and the history showed that the card was used in a different state than my own.
I sent in a support ticket about my specific incidence with this, but thought I would ask the community for any tips on preventing this from happening or steps to prove it? I suppose you could immediately purchase something using the gift card before confirming the purchase on GameFlip, but often I don’t want to use all or even any of it immediately. If this can’t be safeguarded against then there’s just too much risk involved–especially when the seller had a lot of excellent feedback and no negatives.
EDIT: It seems there are sellers who have perfect feedback because there’s no way to even leave bad feedback when a transaction gets cancelled after a dispute.
