Microsoft Account Money Authorization Problem

Got on today to buy The Walking Dead season pass, and keep getting an authorization error on my microsoft account. Can't buy anything, support chat said there's no solution, which I find ludicrous considering I could buy yesterday, and I have money in my account from microsoft cards and money from rewards program. They suggested using Paypal to add the money to that and use it to buy things, but I need a credit card to make it work on Xbox Live, which is a problem considering I don't have a credit card and can't use one. I'd like to have actual help, or atleast tell me what I can do before I cancel XBL and move over to PSN for these idiotic reasons. Thanks.


Question Info

It could be that if you're purchasing with a credit card (debit/bank card) that there was a risk block on the card (it's an automatic safe protocol from the system). I would recommend contacting Xbox Customer Support to verify that it's not a risk block.
