This November my family was approached at a local Kroger supermarket for a photo opportunity. The package was $10 with a $6sitting fee. We decided to go along with it since it was an inexpensive package. We did the photo shoot, and went to pick of the photos a week later.
I went to pick up the photos and was told as I walked in that the packages were all 50% off. He then showed us the photograph and told us the price for everything was on sale for $500. I of course said no. He then preceded to talk down the price to $400 then to $300. I told him I would just take the $16 package we paid for and was about to leave when he told us he could give the pictures to me for $150. He seemed to be getting anxious to sell the pictures so I reluctantly agreed and split up the payments so $75 would go directly off my credit card and the other $75 off of my bank card to be post dated.
Well the $75 went off my credit card, and two weeks after the $75 was supposed to be taken out of my bank it finally cleared. Now a week after that another $75 is showing up as being taken out of my bank account. I am getting very upset that these people have my account numbers. The first charged was cleared and the second one should never have been entered. I have tried to call them and have not recieved any phone call back.
The pictures were okay, nothing I would pay $166 for when I could get pictures done at any local studio for half the price. I don't mind paying for what I recieved, but they were not authorized to charge my account anytime they felt like it.
