The fraud behind it looks like this: The download of these paysafecard generators is often chargeable and can only be paid for using paysafecard. The users pay for the download using a paysafecard PIN, but in return only receive a program that generates worthless 16-digit code codes. Most of the time, not only is the paysafecard credit of the PIN that was used to buy the generator gone, but the computer is also infected with a virus at the same time. If you have already bought and entered a paysafecard, please call the paysafecard service team immediately.

  • With so-called paysafecard generators, criminals want to steal someone else's paysafecard credit.
