Recently i bought a new Oppo phone for my step daughter at one of the
phone shops in Robinson! 8999.00 bht. $253.34 11/15/23.
Initially the sales girl had tried my USA credit card without success by inserting it into the terminal 3x with
each time resulting in a error on the screen!
She tried another terminal and that was successful!
I checked my transactions on my app,
when I got back home that evening and it showed up!
I checked my app transactions on 12/3/23 and noticed that I had 3 more transactions of $258.95 from the same phone store!
I called my Credit Card company to tell them what happened! They said call back During business hours and suggested I go back to the shop and possibly they could rectify it!
I went and showed the girl at the shop
My statement transaction's,she said she would go to the bank Monday to check on it!
I went back Monday to the phone shop sales clerk ,she said there was 2 merchant terminals that she used ,xxx bank terminal 3 errors & yyy bank 1 successful transactions!
Xxxbank 3 error transaction didnt show receiving any funds in phone shop bank account.
Yyy bank showed the 8999.00bht.
I came back home spoke to my card co. I made a dispute for 3 $258.95 charges and explained what I thought happened.They will investigate and it can take up to 2 billing cycles.Also the card company rep was a bit confused at what happened. Eventually she said it sounds like a triple overcharge and classified it that way ! She also asked if I tried to straighten it out with the phone shop ! I said yes they have no funds received for The disputed 3 charges.
The next day I see a $0 temp transaction for doordash.com immediately called the Credit Card company and disputed this they suggested to lock my card , i did.
One hour later I was curious where the
doordash was transacting from ,they said they didn’t know but suggested that I cancel the card and issue a new one! I did.They are sending it to Thailand as i asked and told them I wouldn’t be back to the states until late 2024!
Heres where AliExpress comes into the picture . I bought a lawnmower part on October 4 with a delivery date no later than December 6 !
The seller sent a message(about the same time of my phone shop issues) through the aliexpress app , telling me to contact a number or go on the thaipost link he provides to check the tracking number. A couple of hours later I was curious if door dash.com was still there on the temp transactions, it was gone but
were recent transactions of $0 temp!
My wife told me aliexpress seller is performing scam's!
Anyone who wanted to travel and explore new places have to do their homework first upfront. Going to a remote unknow place with a stranger is asking for truble. Did she check the tour guide license before engaging him. Further in Koh Chang the remote areas lack electricity and phone coverage also.
Looks like this incident is becoming a regular occurence. It is time the authorities have to do something seriously. Just ignore if the person is in sound knolwege of mentaly retarded. All these claims are only as excuse. Just hang them upside down and whack them in their buttock till it bleeds. Once done all their mental issues would be permanently cured.
