Diablo® III

RMAH Purchases not delivering items or money

I know this is an issue already but I haven't found a consolidated thread so I created one. I made purchases on the RMAH 2 days ago. The Auction Log has them listed as completed however the items/gold are in the Completed Items section to be claimed. We can not claim our items/gold. I've submitted two tickets which got the auto response:

At this time, the Diablo 3 auction house can experience periods of increased traffic which may cause various delays. Even if you've successfully purchased an item, it can be several minutes before the item appears. On rare occasions, additional review will be necessary, which can take up to approximately 4 days. I appreciate your patience.

This does not address the issue posted. The auction is not under review or processing. It has been processed and is listed as completed. The money from my account is gone already I just have nothing to show for it. Its a lot like being scammed. Here are my order numbers:
Order ID # 1253018168
Order ID # 1253718655
Order ID # 1253719325
Order ID # 1253733857

Here is a link to a few thousand more players posting the same issue:

Please take it seriously and either return our money or deliver our items/gold.

Same here bought gold, showing up as completed but nothing has been delivered. This happened with gold bought on the 23rd. If they don't deliver the gold it is a scam/fraud and I'll have to take appropriate measures. I opened a ticket they said wait 5 days but I know the gold won't be there in 5 days as it is showing to be completely processed.

Same problem. Several orders showing completed but the items are not showing up. To be clear, they are *not* in "processing". They should have been delivered but have not been. I've never had this happen before today.

This is seriously tarnishing the already weak reputation I have of blizzard. No response on an ETA. I have time off for christmas, I'd like to spend it playing diablo, not waiting for gold I bought to arrive with no idea when

AH is one big scam seriously.

Same here. Submitted a ticket but they said to wait 5 days (seriously?) and then to post on this forum if I still haven't received it. It doesn't even look like they're responding.

I have a similar problem, but I'm on the receiving end. >.<

States that I have sold an item on RMAH, and shows that it is processing, but the item was in my ended stash and I actually could transfer it back into my own stash. >.<

we're working on an issue currently with PayPal users not receiving their funds for sold auctions yet and the status there is the same as far as I know. The appropriate parties have been informed and are aware of the problem. When I hear anything, I'll be sure and pass it on. Until then, repeatedly making posts about it in here isn't helping.

No one's going to lose their money for a sold auction, the process is simply being delayed.

It seems to be random, Ive made several purchases over the last week, and the first to go mia was a gold purchase, then after several more successful transactions, and receiving them fine, I get three more in one sitting, so now I am up to 4 orders mia...so much for doing any more shopping until this is fixed!!
