I was on the chat with a representative for this issue. He told me to wait to find out how we could resolve this and i am waiting and he is not replying for 45 minutes now. The chat is still active though just nobody answers.
And I think they chat option closed while we were chatting.
I really hope he didn't see the clock and just left me there waiting.

Same here.
Bought from my bank (!!!) in Switzerland (Postfinance). 
Living in Switzerland. 
Created account in Switzerland. 

Google support accused me of breaking their terms when using credit from another country. 
I showed the original receipt from my bank for the code used. 
He just said, the system shows another country and the system is never wrong. 
Unbelievable.
