Auction Time Out Error / Gold Taken

Same thing just happened to me.

Went to do a buyout, transaction timed out, but when I went to buy the item again I got the "insufficient funds" message and realized it had taken my gold without giving me the item.

PLEASE fix this bug :(

Also having problems with the AH. Cannot buy a tome of jewelcrafting, keeps erroring and taking my money. I show a completed auction, but the items have not been added to my completed items.

Someone said you get your gold/items back after a couple of hours.. AH lag or something.

We'll see soon enough.

I bought a pair of rubys for 2000g ea. (4000g total). At first it timed out, so I retried, and that succeeded.

I went to collect it from the completed tab to find two purchases of 2 rubys, 4600 and 4200 each. To make matters worse neither is actually available to be transferred to my stash - it's been ~30 minutes now.

Bought and item and experienced this time out error. After that, the item on the AH reflected that it was already sold. My 70000 gold was taken and my auction log showed that i had purchased it.

There was not item to send to stash, so the gold was taken and no item was received.

Appreciate if this could be looked into.

The items will be lost for sure if the "request timeout" error occur. I have already lost 500k gold for this bug . This is truly a blocker bug.

Blizzard, you are making player very mad and frustrated because of this bug.
More players will be lost their gold from now.
Please fix it asap and refund the gold to them if possible.
