AM/PM Arco Gas Station $75.00 account debit for $10.00 transaction Cottonwood Arizona

*Consumer Comment: A charge or a hold?

I recently used my debit card at the Arco gas station on Main St., in Cottonwood, AZ. My transaction was only $10.02. The next day, I noticed an additional and UNAUTHORIZED charge from Arco for $75.00 debited to my account; a day later, it was credited back. I contacted my bank, who confirmed the charge came from Arco.

As a result of this unauthorized debit/credit, my account became overdrawn and I am now liable for overdraft fees. I attempted to call the station, but their phone number is unlisted. I question the legality of what Arco did, since there is nothing posted alerting debit card users of this practice. Had I known, I would have used another form of payment, or gone somewhere else.

A charge or a hold?

AUTHOR: Edgeman - (U.S.A.)

I've never bought gasoline at an Arco station, so I'm not sure how they do it. Was your debit for gas? If so, was the $75 an actual charge or was it just a hold? I'm not saying who is right or wrong, just trying to determine what happened here.
