Product: Credit card debt

Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: XXXX should refund of {$370.00} due from an overpayment by me on their XXXX credit card. Instead, the XXXX credit card indicates a billing error showing charges in excess of {$2500.00} that I did not approve. In addition, XXXX erroneous reporting to credit bureaus has resulted in very negative credit scores.

In XX/XX/XXXX I paid for 2 roundtrip airline tickets to XXXX charging the amount on the XXXX XXXX card. The amount was paid in full within 30 days, resulting in a XXXX balance. Upon return from the trip, new charges appeared on the XXXX card that I disputed. I cancelled the card having made no charges except for the initial roundtrip airline ticket. In XX/XX/XXXX I overpaid {$370.00} to a charge on the statement billed by XXXX that was in error. To date I have not received this refund.

A XXXX Letter, dated XX/XX/XXXX in reference to my XXXX credit card account, stated the credit card dispute is resolved and I am credited {$85.00}. That credit never appeared. Instead of refunding the XXXX overpayment, I have been billed by XXXX with unauthorized credit card charges resulting in {$2500.00}. In addition, XXXX has also reported a default in payments to the 3 major credit bureaus.

The only charges authorized are as follows : On XX/XX/XXXX I booked 2 roundtrip adult tickets to XXXX.
