google lies to steal your personal information

Sunday, August 4th, 2013

I recently purchased a google tablet because of a great app I wanted called torque pro that was not available for my iPad, I went to purchase the app and they said my credit card was denied and put me on a page like this

If you’ve arrived at this page, it means that your Google Wallet online account is currently suspended because we were unable to verify the credit or debit card information for your recent order. To maintain the security of your account, please follow a few simple steps to ensure your account information is up-to-date.
What do I need to complete the form? To confirm your financial identity and protect your account, you’ll need to scan or take pictures of (using your cell phone, for example) your verification documents and then upload them to this form. The verification documents are:
One non-expired government-issued identification
One billing address verification document dated within the last four months and containing the same address on file in your Google Wallet account (if you can’t remember your billing address on file or had multiple on file, use your most recent home address)

Well heres the problem the card was never denied, I called to verify that and it was never even put through, google lied about it to try to get more of my personal information, as far as I’m concerned a company lying about something to force you to give up personal information is illegal and sounds like a good class action law suit, if you have had a similar problem with google please contact me and let me know about your experience.
