Yes, it has happened to me before and its a crappy feeling. You might get the gold back in a few hours, days...or never.

its very likely you won't be getting it back. its happened to me several times and not once did eventually get the gold back.

thats ridiculous, people are loosing gold constantly due to an error in the Auction house and not receiving gold they earned? this needs to be fixed

When asking through ticket, support reps tell you that there are records that you did get the gold.

There are plenty of possibilities going on here.
1) AH bug , makes things register as you receiving the gold, but you don't get it.
2) AH exploit, same as 1) but caused by malicious people that end up actually getting your gold.
3) You did get the gold, but clicked send to stash too fast (maybe got distracted or something) and missed it.

I think 3) Could be happening to some people. The completed bids tab does not keep record of the actual gold you receive or if you sent it to stash.

I think 1) Is also very plausible. Blizzard are know for their bugs.

About 2) ... there is no evidence that such an exploit exists. But to quote a support rep "Anything is possible".


so pretty much gold is now gone? also you can see that i do not have the gold in these pics, and in the bidding list there is no possible way i could have made those bids without that much gold

Thank you :) still no refund as of yet, submitted a ticket about 18 hours ago and no response. Hopefully this can get some attention so it doesn't continue to happen to other people as well

I havent had this problem yet, however, in my experience, refunds don't appear in the completed auctions list, but the gold appears in the tab so you can send it back to your stash.

You are probably a liar just trying to get something for free.

Do you see now why Blizz can't give you (or the thousands of other scammers) a refund?

im not asking for my gold back im trying to bring attention to it, I'm not stupid enough to believe that I'm 1 person out of a million players that they'll stop and take the time to give me 60 mill back

i would just like for a blue to see this and realize its happened to many more than just me

though a refund would be nice :p
