I used to use a dry cleaning service in Lakewood that does pickup and delivery. A month later, I saw a charge on my credit card for $106. I never used that cleaners the following month. I tried calling him many times, but he never picked up the phone. I finally called using a different caller ID. Lo and behold, he picked up on the first ring. I told him that he better credit me back the money or I will do a chargeback. He said he will. I still never received a credit.
This week, I was sifting through one of the Lakewood circulars that are mailed to my house. There was a big announcement that read: “We have been asked by a reader to mention this to the public. A dry cleaning service that holds people’s credit card information for charging regular service seems to sometimes make excessive or incorrect charges to peoples credit cards. If you have given a service your card, check your past credit card statements to make sure you were not charged additional times.”
Apparently, many people are being charged and it’s important to bring this to the public’s atterntion. Check your statements!
