KROGERS stealing money from customers!!!!!!!!!!!!

WORRIED EX CUSTOMER

my boyfriend had money stolen from his bank account by KROGER gas pumps. It was taken out of his account at 11:00 p.m. he was in bed asleep at that time. He had used his card for gas earlier that day, so they had his number and was able to run his card again. Of course his bank is looking into the matter and charges will be pressed to the fullest extent of the law. I can not believe a well know store like Kroger would allow something like this to happen. He is not the only customer this has happened to. There is another lady they have done this to also. Her bank is also investing it. So this is a warning to ALL KROGER customers use cash only do not use a credit card or debit card at the pumps or in the store if so you will take the risk of KROGER stealing money from your bank account. So please take heed of this WARNING!!!!!!!

I highly doubt it. Kroger is a big company, credit cards do not get charged until later in the day. Sometimes my credit cards won't get charged for a week or so.

Never have had an issue. Sometimes it will show a larger amount than used. Because they charge a convenience fee. Usually that fee will drop off when actual amount is posted to the account.

Also it may not show at the time of the withdrawal. It depends on the system the merchant uses. I have had withdrawals show immediately and I have had withdrawals not show for a day or two. I think your accusation may be a bit premature.

I agree with the others on here. May want to back off. Kroger doesn't have any reason to steal your money without you knowing it.
They do a pretty good job at stealing from you right in front of your face. Of course you would have to be dumb enough to let it happen first.
He He!

sorry to tell everyone but they have done it. Got 20.00 in gas then they turn around and charge 66.00 again. They r red flagged red flagged at the bank and there is an investigation going on about it. And this is not the only one that this has happened to. there are others here in town also. So just be very carefully while doing business with Kroger. Is all I am asking.

Double holds
On occasion, due to negligence or computer error, a merchant may attempt to authorize a card twice, creating a double hold on the cardholder's bank account. This often happens when a processor requires additional security verification such as a CVV, Zip Code, or address and incorrect information is provided or it's mistyped. Gasoline pumps often impose a double hold, one for a standard amount (such as $75) and another for the amount of purchase. Though the merchant will only clear the transaction once, the hold will temporarily lower the customer's available balance, potentially causing declines or (for a debit card) overdrafts.
No way

If you are going to accuse a business of stealing from you at least spell the name right. It is KROGER, not KROGERS... I hate it when people say it like that.. . Duh

Actually, last yr I heard of this same thing happening at a restaurant. An employee was the culprit of it, taking the information from there cards and accessing funds off of it through the internet. It is a possible situation, but I wouldn't blame it on Kroger itself, rather the employee.

Don't worry about it. The bank is required to give you credit once you contact them and sign a paper saying there was fraud on your account. After that it's the bank's problem to go back to Kroger or VISA/MC to get their money back.

This happened to me once at another chain, but it was the employee, however I was taught that to be helpful in preventing this type of act, you should ALWAYS press CLEAR on the gas pump selection area so your card number is cleared after your purchase. This eliminates any possibility that your card can be charged twice. This doesn't change the fact that this already happened to you, but I hope it is helpful in the future.

Thank you for the advise. I hope I remember that when I use my card. Which isnt very often.

Always use Kroger gas and my car runs fine..Any time you use a debit or creid card at a gas pump you should push clear at the end of the transaction. There are scammers EVERYWHERE..They've gotton me 3 times, but not in the last few yrs because I've learned to be cautious when using my debit card.

i've had that happen to me when i use my card at pizza hut. the driver put a $10 tip on it and pizza hut wouldn't do anything about it. and i don't know if he works there anymore. so be aware of pizza hut. from now on i put a line threw the tip line and write the total on the bottom line so it won't happen again.
Thank ya
