    You're better off getting the credit monitoring.

    Yeah.. yeah. That redbull check was a whopping 4$, then another 2$ a few months later. My safeway settlement check was 19$! But yeah the equifax is proably going to be more in the 30-50$ range, unless a judge sticks to the 125$ original claims everyone has made*(Might happen, sucks for those lawyers but it might happen if they piss off a judge by promising claimants one thing and only delivering another because they took a huge fee)

    This whole thing with amazon payments though kind of sucks since it is the backbone for mturk as to not being a 'shady' crowdsourcing agent.
    They kind of need to treat it like [​IMG] for anything under 200$ and anything over 200 should hopefully be rare enough(sorry carpy) to deal with on a one by one basis.

    Or maybe anything under a grand since they might consider that grand theft. I also expect pettiness to ensue meaning people are going to be pissed who didn't get any "bonus" if it's all just swept under the rug. No matter what however this shakes out there's gonna be a percentage of people who leave MTurk because of this.

    Only way you'll get in the $30 range is if only 1 million people file a claim. ~140 million people are eligible for the settlement. I'm thinking the check will be pennies.

    Fun Fact: I almost never transfer payments over in the morning. I normally transfer funds from my earnings into payments in the morning and then by about 6-8 it's finished transferring and then I submit that evening. However since the $16.00 HIT was approved that morning I was waiting for it to hit the earnings. It finally did about 3pm which meant by 10 or 11 I would have been able to transfer the funds (and still get it later that afternoon). However I was tired and forgot about it and went to bed and so I then remembered that morning I hadn't transferred the money which of course didn't work. So yeah I would have missed out on all this fun had I not waited for that forecasting HIT payment and then gone to bed earlier than normal.

    needless to say I won't be finding any motivation to turk until this crap is all worked out.
    That's all I need is to continue working & build up available funds then they suspend my acct by mistake (since its obvious they're capable of it) & those funds disappear too.

    I wonder if it’s safe to use my money on amazon. I need to buy some stuff to avoid going to Walmart.

    *the money in my amazon account*

    Vrapi just sent out an email with a video showing their new system.
    Looks alot more automated & flows so much better than using the HIT window.

    You shouldn't even need to send it as a gift card cause normally amazon lets you take from your earnings when you check out. If the option to do so is there then I'd go ahead and do it.

    OK so I have an update on my payments account. A bunch of transactions showed up dated 8-22-19.

    I have a total of 5 failed withdraw attempts that have a status of "failed"
    "cancelled withdrawal to external bank account ending with....."

    Then there's another 6 with a status of "completed"
    "withdrawal to external bank account ending with...."

    Shouldn't be hard to figure out for them. There were 6 total withdraw requests, 5 of them cancelled & shouldn't have went through which leaves the original withdraw request.

    to add on: each of these attempts has a "details" button where you can see the individual transaction ID which is unique. I'm not a banker but shouldn't they be able to simply put a reverse on that specific ID so the bank can see it was made in error? Take the money back and keep the original request.

    I'm only motivated cause I've got over $80 built up so I'm already half way towards paying off my "loan" anyhow and I think today there's pretty low motivation overall and I've noticed I'm doing slightly better than most Fridays and I think it's due to people not working on MTurk cause like you they aren't motivated until this whole thing straightens out...or they are partying with their extra funds.

    It shouldn't be hard but the fact that there's what tens of thousands of people affected by this it might make it a little difficult to say the least. Especially given that there's no way to tell for sure if one fix or one algorithm would work for everyone especially if different banks handled things differently.

    I never use a gift card. So you’re saying it should be ok?
