Friday, Sept. 12, 2008, there was a run on gas. people were frantically running for gas at the pumps before the prices went up drastically from the hurricane.
I went to the Bp oil gas station on the corner of medlock bridge and abbotts bridge in duluth ga. i put my credit card in at the pump and it did not go thru.
i went into the store and asked why the pump did not accept my credit card. the man said it was because i have to pre- pay. I charged 20.00 and went back to the pump. no gas came out! i went back to the store and the person said that there is no gas.
i kindly asked for a refund and the man said not to worry, it will not post, since i did not get gas. by then there were 4 other people, ( some getting rather irrate, demanding their money back). the service person kept on saying that it will not post. this episode happened around 8:30 p.m. friday evening.
when i got home, i notified my credit card co. the card co said this was fraudulant, and to call back monday to see if indeed the charge posted. i called monday, and the charge did post. i called the BP and talked to someone there. they made it sound like i can get my credit if i come to the station. i told them that i was on my way. when i got there, the lady employee said that the only one that could issue a credit was the manager, and that he is gone at a meeting and will return tomorrow.
i went back the following day. ( today- tuesday) and they refused to issue me a credit. the man said to wait until i get a physical statement showing the posting did go thru. i told him that it already posted with my credit card company, and that i would appreciate it if they even give me gas or something for the amount of money that i had put on my card. he said he could not do that. so, it looks like i got ripped off. i know that there were many, many people that evening when i was in the store that were ripped off as well. this is not a way to do business. it is taking advantage of the consumers in dire need of gas!!!
i hope you can help get this dispute rectified. my credit card company said that despite the fact that i have the receipt, i really don't have the actual proof that i did not receive gas. there was NO gas to be had at that station and people were putting charges on their credit cards left and right!! this is fraudulant work!
