Racetrac Gas StationDavie Road Extension Davie, Florida United States of America
On Oct. 20, 2010 I purchased $14.27 worth of gas at the Racetrac station on Davie Road Extension, Davie, FL using my debit card at the pump. The transaction was reported on my account statement online as a pending transaction; however, an additional $65 hold was placed on my account without my knowledge that caused my account to become overdrawn and I have been unable to access my money for the past three days. No notice from the gas station was given that they were doing this. (I was unable to purchase groceries because I could not use my debit card.)
I was informed by my bank that this is a new law that went into effect about 6 weeks ago allowing gas stations to place holds up to $100 over the amount of purchase on your bank account. UNFAIR!!!
Gas Stations should be required to advise customers that unless they want a hold put on their bank account, they have to pay in cash. Also, some public notice should have been made in advance of this practice going into effect.
