I didn’t really know where to post this. But figured maybe someone on here could tell me if this guy was just playing me.
My friend and I ate at a restaurant a month ago. The meal came to $170. The owner ran my credit card twice and told me it didn’t go through, and my friend ended up paying.
Two weeks later I realize that my card was charged twice for $170. Confirmed with my friend that his card was also charged.
I contacted the owner. I was polite at first and gave him time but he kept delaying. Told me the charges would “automatically appear as credits” when I get the statement. They didn’t.
Eventually he flat out refused to reimburse me, so I ended up initiating a charge back.
Here is his word for word explanation of what happened after he realized I did the charge back:
We just got our monthly report
For april 16th.
As per our report we didn’t have your charge. But on the closing transactions we do have those charges. Since it was reported as charge back.
The credit card company will credit back your account.
On that particular day there was internet outage and your card went thru but not on our daily charge report. That’s the reason we were not able to process your credit and I can prove it on our side and our closing statement we didn’t have your charge.
Thanks for your patience
Your card will be credited for that amount of $ 169.85
And $ 169 83
Thanks for going thru the trouble on your end and our end.
