Working Class Corner/Stupid Thing I Did
I signed up for an 8 day trial of the Google Fortune Kit. The trial was to cost .99 cents. I paid that with my Visa debit card. I called after a few days since I had not found any email in junk or my regular box. They said "We’ll send it." I did not find it. I called to cancel since I didn’t have money in my account to cover the charges anticipated.[p]
"Canceled." -"Here is the cancellation code." -"Okay, problem solved, no worry."
Money taken from my bank account anyway. Bank account overdrawn. 80 dollars in bank overdraft charges. 70 dollars in charge for Google Fortune Kit.
I go to bank. "You have to get the money back from them."
I call. "We’ll refund you." – 3 to 5 business days.
3 days and I call to check, "What’s up? Where is this money?"
5 days, "What’s up? Where is this money?"
6 days, "What’s up? Where is this money?"
Oh stupid stupid me.
Of stupid things I have done, this is one.
Banker says, "Well actually they can take up to 6 months to give you back the money."
