Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to get your credits back, we are not responsible for your typing errors.

Place your personal banner on your IMVU avatar page, on Facebook or somewhere else on the internet and every time someone clicks your banner and buys credits, you get 3% of their order! This means you get free credits!
