    I recently signed up for the windows azure free trial. They give $200 credit, and you can use however you want. I was just using it to run vagex/amf/hitleap bots. Couple days ago, I log in to check on my vps, and it's gone. Whole Microsoft account deleted.

    Then it gets really weird. I check my bank account this morning, and there are 4 deposits from windows azure totaling $80. WTH?
    Can anyone explain this? Will the transaction be reversed?
    I'm going to leave it there for a week or two, but after that I have no idea.
    Proof attached. Please help!

    Hello emaloy97,

    This is weird. I think its some sort of a BUG in there system. I normally would advice you to contact Microsoft relating the issue to avoid any future repercussions, but then again you got your account banned/deleted by running bots (which I think is against their TOS - don't know for sure), so I am not sure if it would be a wise idea in this situation.

    I had the same thought. I mean, yeah the $80 is great, but not worth any legal trouble. What I think happened is that the $80 or whatever was what I had left out of the $200 trial. Supposedly here in the US, with any accounting trouble, the company retains rights to take it back.
