That seems like an insane failure on Stripes side not to disable the payments after the first 100,000 or so.
yes that's the part i am also not able to understand i don't think there will be no limit at failed payments. I am also using stripe for my business and i got warning messages when payment gets failed due to fraudulent activities.

Hopefully, the business owner can come to a solution together with Stripe, it is not in Stripe´s best interest to enforce those fees in this case.
This is the equivalent of their own scam if they try to enforce that.

So millions of "transactions" didn't ring any bells at Stripe?

Faced the same sh*t a few weeks ago with over 200 Plus failed payments from the same user with different cards I think even Elon musk doesn't use 200 different credit cards. I ultimately got suspended by the payment processor but this is ridiculous some people are just wicked!

Unrelated to the issue, but it seems that lastPass hack started to make the first victims

I've seen such cases happen in past and similar ones, where for example developer made a mistake and loop of pay-per-call API is run for thousands of times generating -50k overnight.

Usually when such cases happens, by contacting the vendor and explaining the issue, it's possible to one-time reverse this charge.

I actually did the same by accident, generating over -3k on google geolocation service, I've contacted support, explained myself and my bill was canceled.

This is pretty scary but I am sure if they have a lawsuit they have a high chance to win if they can prove it somehow.

But the lawsuit won't be cheap as well...

Ye that makes sense but what if Stripe has to pay for the fees what then? Will they pay 40k for you? Hmm

Stripe can do the same to what they pay fees for, there probably are mechanisms in place to prevent businesses from being abused in this way so Im sure they can sort it out.

At the end of day, this Stripe Radar is meant to protect the business, not bankrupt it.

Yes, it would be logical for them a protect your customer feature, I am sure it is not the first time them having this situation.

roughly £36k, not including fees for all the refunds we had to process. Our Stripe balance is currently sitting at -£40,402.79 and I have absolutely no idea what to do.
Not to be the asshole but, he clearly didn't do anything when he was -£4k in debt.

This is will go through a fraud police investigation.
The business owner will not be punished by any means.

This was not a mistake or a Stripe failure
They do this on purpose to make money.
If I were the OP I would simply ignore that and move to another payment processor. Leave the debt collectors talking alone and ignore them.
Stripe is becoming more like PayPal every day

You're absolutely out of your mind if you think a multi billion $ company it out there scamming its own users

Have had this happen before, not on that particular scale but it has happened. All he's got to do is ring stripe and they'll sort it out. They won't charge him for it.
