For those of you not familiar with pre-paid credit cards, their basically cards you use like a mobile phone, you top them up, and can only use whats on them, for a small fee. I have one specifically for internet shopping as its completely unrelated to my bank account. Mine was connected to the network.
On the 17 th of May, I checked my balance. I had 2.22 left. Obviously, this was during the outage, so I couldnt exactly spend that. On the 18th of May, someone had topped their PSN account up with a fiver, putting my card into a minus balance. No big deal right? So i got on to the card company, got them to cancel the card, n had them email me disputed transaction forms, which I filled in, with as much detail as I possibly could mind you, and sent to them on Friday, which would have roughly arrived on Saturday gone. Today I get this email: (my comments in italics)
Dear Mr. *******,
Thank you for returning your Disputed Transaction form and for your patience during our investigations.
Regretfully, we will be unable to progress or refund your dispute. After thorough investigation, we believe the disputed transaction may have been undertaken by you. A thorough investigation in roughly five hours? Clever boys!
If you are able to provide further evidence on this matter we will be happy to investigate this further. Why yes, I can, you'll be getting it shortly.
At present, we can only recommend that you contact the merchant for a refund if the transaction should not have cleared. Passing the buck then are we?
Now, surely I'm not the only one that sees the outright accusation here? Do they really think id be hacking the network, using my own card, then claiming it back?!?! How stupid do they think I am?
Sent this back:

So what your saying is on the 18th may the day Psn was taken down someone used your card to add funds to Psn.
I have a pre pay credit card & it is impossible to put a pre pay card in arrears as you only have access to funds on your card.
If i were you i would check your outgoings properly to save your save from looking completely stupid.
And credit card details weren't stolen only other account details.

Try checking the web site you got your card from as if it's anything like the one i use they have all your transactions on the site so you can follow them.
Just because you printed of all your purchases it doesn't mean it will be accurate as i'm so sure your have to make a micro transaction with each purchase.
