one time me and my husband stopped there and asked for 20.00 we gave the man the money and he proceeded to pump the gas however he only put 10.00 in and stopped and put the cap on if I hadn't looked back and seen he only put 10.00 in we probably would have just drove off.... I'm glad I paid attention we haven't been back...

Hung Lo ALWAYS gets out and pumps his own gas. That is why Hung Lo is skinny and many Americans are fat and lazy. They are too lazy to get out of their car. They go through a drive through restaurant and eat without getting of car. Then they go to gas station to have someone to pump their gas. Hung Lo think you might try to use a bathroom in your car if you could without getting out. Hung Lo always asks for a receipt. Do what Hung Lo does and you will be skinny and not ripped off.
first off hung lo i appreciate your response to my post..but what you are insinuating does not apply to me.. my vehicle was puttering at i floated on fumes into the lot..no could i have made it to D&G ..or krogers to use my kroger 10cent discount...you bet your skinny ass i would have but this was not the case...i dont ever go to that swiftys , i do pump my own gas..i did received my receipt that day for the gas i purchased but not the additional gas on another pump that i was charged for...but anyways i was refunded, all is well

What Hung Lo said initially is correct. Most gas stations hit your card with a charge that is then refunded back after purchase to ensure your account has enough $$ to fill up a tank. This amount varies but as gas prices go up, the amount goes up. They assume SUV size. It happens all the time and is perfectly legal. So your refund was an automatic process.

I hate to hear this! They did this to me as well and got 40.01 twice more on my card. They kept my card while pumping only thing I can think is they wrote my number down. Dispute it with your bank I did!

file a report with the police this is a theft. and talk to your bank about it. and call and talk to the manager and swiftys and tell them they robbed you and you will report it to the police and the bbb. don't do nothing. if you make enough noise they will pay you to shut you up and scare off all their customers. i have been there but haven't paid attention to stuff like that so i hope i wasn't robbed and now i'm scared to go back.

Was it the assistant manager Crystal? She is a theif. Blamed many of her workers for her wrong doing. But she got fired on thursday so need to worry about her anymore. AH HA HA HA HA HA.(And crystal, now us lazy a$$es will pump our own gas since your not there to do it. You taught a few of us a lesson, never trust just anyone.

Same girl did same thing to me Monday morning March 26, 2012 I pulled into first pump and she pumped .60 cents and said there was a hole in the hose gas was coming out the side of the hose to pull up to the next pump. Then she said she needed to swipe card again since different pump and pumped $40 and we pulled off as we pulled off she went in and came out carrying tool box so looked like it was a real problem it was a real scam now my checking account overdrawn with lots of fees and I have went to swifty twice and yet no one has offered to help other than take my phone number no return call and today they told me to call some number who isn't available on the weekend yet the charges keep rolling in. So the sign that says you save .03 cents if you pay cash you may save $30 to $75! I have always went to swiftys but if they care this little about a customer of 15 years that usually tips then I can go else where.

yes I agree. This place has gotten pretty bad. I used to go up the all the time for my gas but one day I was supposed to get a certain amount of gas and the girl pumping it put me in five dollars less than I gave her cause I paid in advance. I saw the pump myself and never said a word thinking that five she kept was going to feed her or something of good cause. But I got home and got to thinking about it and wondered if this is something she does alot to her customers. I called and low and behold, she was the manager of the place. I asked for the owners name and number and she refused to give it to me. My swifty days were done that day sometime in february. Sorry others have experienced a low lifes scams as well.
Well

I dont know the owner of swifty by name but i know the man. he is honest and im sure if you go up there bright and early monday morning. he will be there. he is kind of a short fellow with a mustache kinda heavy set. always drives a ford truck. I think we will fix this problem if he learns of whats going on. same man has owned that station for years. he has a good name in this town. i spoke with him once about them closing the restroom soon as its cleaned and he fixed that. but now its starting over again the restroom is always out of order so the attendant says broken chain etc etc truth is they top sorry to get the key for you. mostly happens on night shift.

I haven't got gas there in years. Last time I did, I asked for $20 in gas, and it was around $2.85 a gallon then. After they pumped and I started my vehicle back up, the hand barely moved. Any other time I put in just $20, it moves.

Nope...will never go back there.

the owners name is richard. He is a very nice guy. And glad he finally canned the store manager. She was no good for nothing. She was never ready to pump gas, mumble under her breathe and is down right rude the customers. Glad she is gone . I may even start going back there. She needs to find a pie tasting job, cause she sure sucks with customer service.

You're thinking of Willy. Willy was not the owner only a store manager. The store is corporate owned. The dyke biker looking chick is now the store manager.

Richard is not the owner only a district manager. He manages this one and two in Lexington.

The girl barely screwed my gas cap on and caused the check engine light to come on in my car. Cost me a trip to the service department. Swifty lost my business, cause I'll never be back.
