Anyone else tried topping up tonight?

I have just tried, both web-based from a pc, and on the android app.

The PC gives me the following error when I click on the link to top up by credit card, I cannot enter any details;

Sorry, you have been blocked from using the payment system.

My phone allows me to enter all of my CC details, however has the following error after submitting;

Sorry, there was an error processing your transaction.Please try again or call 777 customer services.

Unfortunately I am in no position to call them until after 10pm.

I have now tried again, the mobile app says the connection has timed out, both on data and wifi.
I tried on the website, and has now worked.

Must have just been a hiccup.

What would cause an account to be barred?

recharge barred happens when 3 attempts are made topping up by recharge voucher PIN and it's incorrect
