I took uber with a friend one Saturday night, and we decided to meet up at a usual meeting spot and then take uber from there. So the ride there charged me about $20. When we left the bar at 2am, I guess uber raises the fare rate a lot higher because they know a lot of people request uber at that time on a Saturday. So, my friend said don’t request it bc it’s too high and that we should just wait until the fare rate goes down. Her friend wanted to leave bc we were waiting outside and it was really cold so she gave me a $20 bill and said to just do the uber, so I did. My phone battery was really low, my friend and her friend were really drunk (I wasn’t - I rarely drink but still wanted to take uber bc of the city we were going to) and when the uber driver called bc they were near, he had a thick accent and couldn’t find us but kept saying ‘I’m right here’, so I was getting frustrated with him and kind of gave an attitude bc I was annoyed.
Anyway, when I got home I looked at my email and my uber receipt was $131.99! I was in shock by this amount. So the next day I was telling a friend and she mentioned maybe to call or something but I don’t think there’s any number to call so I emailed and asked if this was the right amount it should be. They emailed me back and said that they noticed it was off by quite a few and told me they refunded me $35. But, it was still $96.
I told co workers at work and they were all shocked about this amount too, and one of the girls mentioned that i should call my bank and they can dispute the charge. So, I did call my bank’s customer service line and made a request to dispute the charge. I’m still waiting to see what the outcome is bc they are doing the investigation. But they told me for now they will temporarily put back the $96 into my account.
My question is, if the bank decides to cancel that charge and give me back my full amount ($96) I paid, is that ok? Bc that price might be the accurate amount but I was just really shocked by that amount.
