Newsdemon Credit Card Outtage Fixed

By Newsgroup Usenet January 2nd, 2009

On January 2nd, between the hours of 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM, experienced a critical error with their credit card processor which prevented successful checkout for those who had attempted to pay via Credit Card.

We at have since repaired this issue, and we are happy to report that credit card methods of payment are now fully operational.

This had only effected those customers who attempted to pay by credit card only. All PayPal methods of payment, including PayPal transactions that are paid by credit card, are not related to and have not been affected by this error as they are separate payment processors and systems.

The issue that caused this error involved a dropped communication between our server to our payment processor. No information gathered or stored on our servers were ever at risk of being compromised. The error solely caused an unsuccessful transaction.

At 6:00 PM today, after extensive testing, has taken measures to remove the error, allowing customers to checkout via credit card.

Any questions or concerns regarding this matter specifically can be directed via email at [email protected] We apprecitate your patronage and greatly apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
