    I went to a touchless carwash for the first time b/c I was lazy and didn't want to detail it myself. Recent summer rains left my truck pretty damn dirty.

    First it wouldn't read either of my credit cards, so I scrounged up $6 in change and put it in the machine.

    IT LOOKS LIKE THE FREAKING THING DIDN'T EVEN WASH MY TRUCK. The windows and body still have a layer of dirt.

    Wtv, I go home, check my bank account and the FREAKING CAR WASH MACHINE CHARGED MY CARD EACH TIME I SWIPED IT EVEN THOUGH IT SAID IT DID NOT READ. So now I'm out $24, not just the $6 for the crappy car wash.

    Since the place is automated, I can't call anyone to dispute it. Also, it doesn't have a website either so no customer service center.

    I'm gonna try and call my bank in the morning to see what can be done.

    An account hold for the money and an actual charge are two different things. I bet only one hold goes through.

    If they go through [the charges] file a Reg E Debit Card Claim with your bank. You lawfully have the right to be protected from such incidents.
