Update on AMAZON Saga!

Hi everyone! thanks for your good wishes! Man this really sucks, and I am not even kidding you! It started with me going around and around this morning with Amazon. That got me absolutely nowhere. They said "YES we can see where something was charged, but we dont know what, and you will have to talk to billing to see about them refunding you. OH but there is no one there that takes incoming calls so it is done through email"
So they opened up another case. Then an hour later, I get another email from them stating that the case is closed. I clicked on the links in the email, and it wouldnt even let me in period! I finally called my bank again, I had to cancel my debit card, which is where my paycheck is, so I have to have my work cancel my direct deposit, so that I can get a paper check while this is being straightened out. That means I have to add the NEW debit card once it gets here in 10 business days, and then it will take a full month for direct deposit to take effect again! That really sucks, because I go to school and I dont have time to physically GO to work on fridays (Im off on fridays) and go to the bank. I can do it, but it is just a major hassel! But anyway, the bank says they will get the money back. I dont know how, or when but supposedly they were confident they would! We'll just have to wait and see what really happens with it....

good morning and WARNING! AMAZON users

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend and that your monday morning is off to a good start! or at least a start.... Anyways, I havent had many responses yet to the new thread for NUMBERS, so please post something for tonights feature!
A WARNING for anyone using AMAZON! They have made a major mistake and taken money from our account that we did not authorize. We have never used their service, only signed up for an account a while back to look up school book prices and such. Never bought anything, never sold anything. But saturday early in the morning, I recieved an email saying they had debited 319.92 out of my account. And YEP thats THREE hundred ninety two, not three dollar! So I freaked out and tried to contact them. They say YES we show where we debited your credit card on file, but we cant see why it was done. Supposedly they were going to fix it and issue a refund. I recieve an email this morning, saying "we closed your account and your inquiry is closed"
So I email them back asking about the refund as they didn't mention it in the email. I recieve an email back that states "OH we never debited your account, we tried and it didn't go through but no money was ever taken". So of course by this time, I am HOT!
So I call ONCE again. This time they say, WELL yes I do see where it was taken out, but we cant guarentee they will refund the money. The agent says they are going to reopen the case and forward it to their billing area. We repeatedly asked WHY they charged us to being with, and we were given the run around every time. We have contacted our credit card company and they are investigating to see if we can get our money back. So please BEWARE!
Not to mention, it came from a card that my paycheck is direct deposited on. Please say a prayer for us that they will resolve it SOON! We are not rich, and that was a BUNCH of money to just have disappear!
