BigPond Billing Alert - Credit Card Authorization Failure ( CaseID - 8769027 )

Dear BigPond valued member,
During our monthly maintenance, our billing and account management department was unable to authorize your current payment method information.

This might be due to one or more of the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal registered user information ( i.e. change of address, phone number, credit card )
2. Submitting invalid information during the initial registration or upgrade process.
3. An inability to accurately verify your BigPond billing information due to an internal error within our billing processors.

Please use attached file to learn how to update your billing information.



NOTE! If your account information is not changed within the next 48 hours then your ability to use any services provided by BigPond such as broadband, wireless, adsl, cable, dialup and email might become restricted.

Thank you for using BigPond !

Please do not reply to this e-mail, as this is an unmonitored alias.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
