1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    "Hello,

    We’re writing to let you know that there was an issue that impacted your ability to transfer funds from your Amazon Payments account to your bank account from August 21 through August 22.

    If you attempted to transfer funds during this period, they were delayed by 1-2 days. If you attempted the same transfer more than once, it may have been duplicated, resulting in an incorrect balance in your Amazon Payments account.

    We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these transfer issues. In this case, any duplicate transfers made as a result of this issue will not be reversed and those funds will remain in your bank account.

    We’re working hard to fix the incorrect Amazon Payments balance for all impacted Customers. This process may take a few days, we appreciate your continued patience. We’ll follow up again once the incorrect Amazon Payments balance issue is resolved.

    Should you have any questions or need additional support, please contact us at https://pay.amazon.com/contact.

    Sincerely,

    The Amazon Payments Team"

    Cool thanks for the update! Honestly I don't think they need to fix any negative balance. Just give people a way to transfer back or if they are mturkers just build it back up and just consider it a free loan.

    Just got this email too, kind of strange that they say the transactions will not be reversed but then they go on to say they are working hard to fix? Doesn't not reversing the transactions = fixed?

    Idk, I'm sleepy and full of food. Brain no worky.

    We just got cash advances. Every time I transfer to Payments, my negative balance gets closer to $0.

    Possibly. My guess is that if they thought a significant number of people were going to do this and the amounts were significant, they would be working to reverse the transfers.
