Additional Notes

Complaint: This establishment ran my debit card for $486 without my verbal or written consent. I was never informed that tey were going to process this transaction for this amount at any point in time. Last week I had emailed with the director of the child care center. She informed me of a due balance which I believed to be incorrect. She expressed that it was possible she had made an error on her behalf. I was to check my records and get back to her. I emailed and called her today but she wouldn't speak to me so I left her a message with the assistant director, ******. after I realized they had gone on and debited my card for the $486 without permission. Immediately after, I received a phone call from a male stating he was the owner and that his wife was the one who had processed the payment. He basically told me that since my kids had been withdrawn last Friday, they ran my card. He proceeded to tell me I had given them verbal authorization which is a lie. Then, without notice or authorization, the owners, according the the director, were the ones who ran my card and she went on to give me their contact information. She claimed not to have any information regarding this matter and that I needed to call the owners directly. That being said, that email itself is proof that I never authorized them to process my card for $486. The director who normally processed my payments in person or over the phone when I would call them in. In the email she clears herself of running my card and puts the blame on the owners who were never present at the facility. So it's impossible that I would have ever given them verbal authorization to run my card.

Desired Settlement: I want them to admit that they processed my debit card without verbal or written authorization. I want them to credit my card back until I have researched my records to verify the amount that I owe them. And I want them to run my card when I have given them proper authorization.

Business Response:

Dear ***** **********
    Blue Bird Kids Academy is aware of the situation and was waiting to hear back if the amount owed was our mistake.  We have checked and double checked our billing software as well checked with our bank for your deposit made that we have no record of receiving.  We apologize for the fact you are angry at us and are willing to refund the money back to your card if proof of payment is given to us.  I apologized over the phone but was unable to get a word in and then you hung up.  I have no record of you card information or any proof to refund your money.  I will be more than happy to schedule a time with you to meet and discuss this matter further.
