Re: Man was charged $85,000 On his credit card for a tank of gas at BP
It's likely an error at the gas station pump. It printed out his receipt for his transaction, but likely transmitted a cumulative sale docket to his account (a register of all gas sales on that pump) rather than his specific transaction. I know for a fact that in situations like this bank policy is to open a fraud claim investigation and provide a provisional credit to the impacted account until the claim is resolved. Unless Citibank has made a major change to their terms of service agreement he could actually sue the bank for damages and breach of contract. That seems like a simple enough situation to resolve. Just return his account to it's original balance and put the overdraft into an internal GL account until the funds are tracked down between the two companies. This kind of situation happens all the time between mortgage companies and counties and it's always resolved within hours.

Looks like Citi finally cleared it up. They definitely need a better oversight system though; this should never have been paid out in the first place as I'm sure the amount is unusually high in comparison to the normal transactions he makes to put it mildly.
