Add fuel (for SpamCop reporting account) broken

Recommended Posts

I attempted to "add fuel to my account" by following the link to "Proceed to Verisign payment page". After entering credit card details, I eventually get the error message:

Transaction declined! Your transaction was approved! However, a communication error with the merchant's site occured.

The transaction has been voided, please contact the merchant.


When I follow the link at the bottom of Verisign's error page for "Information", I get to a Spamcop.net page with the following uninformative error message:


Unknown action failure


I've already made two attempts at payments - about a week ago - and another one today and it appears the problem is something that Spamcop - "the merchant" - has to resolve. I have snapshots of the relevant pages in PDF format that I can send by e-mail if necessary; but I doubt this will provide any new information apart from what is in my message above.

Also, the page at https://www.spamcop.net/mcgi?action=paymenu that goes to the Verisign payment page refers to there being "two online payment options" when it appears in fact there is only one online payment option at present. I remember using Paypal to pay to "add fuel" to my reporting account in the past; but this does not seem to be available any more. I was actually wondering why Paypal is unavailable as a method of payment now?

Is anybody else having difficulties with this? (All of the other posts that I can find about "adding fuel" appear to be related to CES mail or very old),

I'm sorry about that.

We're having trouble with the payment page.

We're working on it.

Past 2 days when using my known-good corporate Visa card:

"Transaction declined!
Your transaction was approved! However, a communication error with the merchant's site occured.
The transaction has been voided, please contact the merchant."
When I click the "Information" button it redirects to https://www.spamcop.net/cgi-bin/spamcop/signup?action=failure
and states: "Unknown action failure"

Didn't miss it, it seems a bit stale, thought a fresh report might be appreciated.

It is now mid Jan 2015 and the verasign payment system is still broken !

How about providing an email address or paypal account we can make a paypal to ?

Is the spamcop project so flush with money it doesent need our contributions any more ?

or are the contributions so few and far between that it is not worth the effort to fix ?

&nbsp &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Posting here is unlikely to do any good (not that you'd know that :) <g>). I'd suggest that you write to "SpamCopAdmin" Don D'Minion at th e-mail address that's in the sig in his post, above 91246[/snapback].
