My dad is in Duke Hospital. The Holiday in Express was full. I was exhausted from driving so I called reservations from a McDonalds in town. I was clearly quoted $115 for a single bed king for one night....

Atcheck in, I gave them the reservation number and my card. The printout showed $115 . I looked to make sure it said $115, but they do not give you a copy. I went straight to the room, straight to sleep, never dined, never left the room, never touched the in room bar, actually never even saw it....I just slept until the hospital called and I had to quickly leave.

Guess what? The $115 that I expected to be off my card? Showed two charges totaling $729.
It's looks like they charged me $229 for the room and a $500 deposit. I've looked at other reviews and they've done the same type of thing before over and over. Like charging people for two bottles of wine instead of one and ...I need that money....I barely had the $115 but I had to sleep.......I was stolen from by people who are already wealthy........

Any suggestions. It's is Monday night and this happened last night. I just discovered it. My debit said they can't do much, etc.......he'll, I could hardly understand what the guy was telling me...

Aha, the old deposit off of a debit card trick. Had you used American Express they would have not added the $500. They assume since you used your debit, that you're a loser. S they withdrew $500 plus $229 and after about a week they will return some of the money, meanwhile the $500 is in their account drawing interest. Now, that might not seem like much of a ripoff, but Obama wanted to make that kinda crap illegal.

Republicans declined. We better start dealing in cash only.

I TRIED to use a MasterCard. At a shell station . It wouldn't accept it. It STILL CHARGED A DOLLAR FOR ATTEMPTING TO USE IT.......

Most people are so STUPID that they cannot see the true war existing in America. The top 2% are in league together. They own te tea party and republicans . They not end to take over and they're winning.

Be sure I handled it, sir. I thought other should know. Not necessarily some clown in Seoul, Korea but yes, that's almost exactly what these forums are for. The general overall PULSE of what's happening in the area. Well, Duke Washington is SHORTING people. Go look at their reviews and other have found MANY excessive charges on the cards. Extra bottles of wine at dinner. It goes on forever. Then, the very next morning, I got something from the Better Business Bureau. I am still showing a $500 HOLD on my card. Yes, one of my initials likely authorized that. The long and short of it is that I agreed to one set of terms and they did something entirely different. Keep your stupid ass in Korea. You could be king one day.
