Due to a gifting glitch in their Kingdoms of Camelot game that some people took advantage Kabam has sent this message saying they are going to charge players credit card or pay pal accounts without permission. This is unacceptable and unbeleivable!! Here is the message that all players have received.

From: Kingdoms Of Camelot Subject: Gifting Issue Date: August 5, 4:35 PM Dear Kingdoms of Camelot player, First, thank you all for bearing with us with game performance during the recent sending gift issue in Kingdoms of Camelot. We released more fixes today, we wanted to take a second also to recap the changes we made over the past day and preview what we will be working on in the coming days. Issue Recap and Fixes Yesterday we released the new guardian buildings to of players in KofC. After monitoring the release for day, we saw no issues. In the first 24 hours, of the new gifting system almost a five million gifts were giving out across all worlds. Unfortunately, the spurt in activity it pushed our system infrastructure over the edge. Shortly after release, we saw major performance issues that resulted in many players unable to log-in and send marches. We identified a few slow queries and player chat as the main culprits causing the spread of this vulnerability to other players and worlds. Over the next few days, we implemented a series of auditing to players items in their inventory. After studying the results of these changes, we will be charging the small minority of players their PayPal accounts and credit card information on record for all gifts that abused the new gifting system. Thanks to our loyal supporters who continue to help us in our endeavors to improve game performance. Remember you can also get some self-help in the Kingdoms of Camelot Forums Kingdoms of Camelot Forums Thanks for playing! The Kingdoms of Camelot Team.

Not every player took advantage of this glitch and Kabam developers also took items that were paid for in the game by millions of people. So, not only were items bought and paid for but then taken away, now they are going to charge peoples accounts without permission. Isn't that illegal. Millions of people play this game all over the world and this will create a major crisis internationally.
