    Prelude: I played the android game that accepts payment through google last year.
    I bought in game gems through for about $15,000 through out the year.
    I charged back around $11,000 through my credit card and won the dispute and all
    the credit I received was finalized. I did use google refund to get another $4,000 back.
    I did also spend about $4000 out of my pocket that didn't get refund.

    Current situation:
    my gaming account got banned and I lost everything.
    the game wasn't made in usa and it's not even usa google market anymore.
    I can no longer use my google wallet. I did use prepaid google gift card
    to buy some other stuff, but they took it down as well for suspicious activity or whatever.
    they told me to verify my identity to remove temporary wallet lock down but even after
    that, they didn't reopen my account. There was about $400 credit in my google wallet that
    was redeemed with prepaid google play card. They won't give me money back on that either.
    They did tell me to cancel charge back and come back to them for further assisstant but
    charge back was done last year and it's over. I won the charge back and all the cases were
    closed months ago so I can't cancel my charge back even if I wanted to. But I don't want to
    even if I could because the game developer banned my account which I spent $4000 out of
    my pocket as well.

    Future: what will happen? it is highly unlike the game developer will do anything to me
    other than banning my account since items I refunded were in game gems which hold
    no value in real life. plus the developer gets $10 mil+ charge back every year and located
    in Asia. Will I get trouble from google? Will they give me my $400 back? will they ever reopen
    my google wallet for me?

    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry, but I don't quite understand. Did you actually spend $15,000 in actual money on this game? Or is that just in-game currency that was purchased with a few hundred dollars of actual money? Are you saying the charges to your account were fraudulent?
