I lost my referral money and ability to buy apps/content after the multi-currency cheating trick!


I had some US$30..35 in my meta account/credits.

Then meta started with the currency tricks, adding NOK as currency at a bad exchange rate.

Then I did a device referral to a friend - and received an notification that I will get it in NOK310 (less than the usual value of  US$30)

(by this time I should have an amount of about $60)

Instantly, the app stopped showing any referral data, and my meta account got reduced to $13 !

My app and meta account does NOT show real data anymore, (it did reverse referral payouts for last three referrals, and shows no sign of the device referral )

And I am unable to do any purchase in the meta shop!

The situation has been like that for 14 days, and it is 10 days ago Meta support last time cared to reply to me.



I assume this is because the referral system is not ready for multiple currencies, and everything fails by the dual-currency "wallet" now.

Anyone else noticed to have lost money after this trick?


you are probably right, but meta fails to fix it, or revert me to US$ as requested. 

the support cannot be bothered to help me, no meaningful communication from them the past week. I nagged and made another case just to get help.

Still need help?
