The good news is that the money that I tried to transfer to my back yesterday that supposedly failed is in my bank account now. The bad news is my payments account is still showing negative from the extra time I tried to transfer.

So they deposited mine twice. I got 19.72 x 2. So that’s why mine is negative.

Joy. -$300 because they ran the withdrawal 10x. Will they fix in their end (reverse their mistake) or will I have to "add money" back from Bank? Can you just keep it negative and transfer money from mturk every day until it's back in the black? Ie; any negative consequence of a negative balance for 2 weeks or so? Plus side, I'm $300 richer this morning.

Morning, I remember awhile back that happened to someone and they took it back off of their MTurk earnings. I know some people got a couple 1000 dollars back so can't say how they will do it this time. I did hear their were no negative consequences. Just what I heard for what it is worth. Sorry that this happened. I know it would cause me stress and anxiety.:nailbiting:

UGH I read these posts and was like I better check. Even though they only attempted to deposit my money once and it failed and went back to payments and the second attempt was successful I have a negative balance in my payments account. So Amazon is actually taking money from me now?!

Ok update. I just emailed them. And now I notice it looks like they made an extra withdrawal "Withdrawal to external bank account ending with ---" nothing. They tried processing a withdrawal to nothing. Although I wish I had seen this first because I have no faith in the response I'll get. I wish I had included that detail in the email.

I would look at it like an advance from a job if they are going to take it back off your Mturk earnings. For me, the hard part would be looking at it as an advance rather than found money. Found money means I get to satisfy my "Shiny Object Syndrome" or SOS as me and my girls call our shopping trips.

I didn't get an advance though I did not receive extra funds :(
But please if anyone wants to send me extra funds in the future that's totally cool!

They have you at a negative but it never got into your account? I read on another forum that most people got the extra money in their bank accounts. How stressful for you.:hug:

I know that's what I thought it seems that all the others seem to have the money. They better resolve it by the time I need to withdraw from my turk again and if they do then I'm ok. However, the money and South America is on fire I don't know. Time to put on my foil hat, horde food and water!
