My account was debited for compensation for network issues in Dec 2018!

I spotted a £1 debit from my Credit card account on 13/1/19 from O2. When I phoned to find out what it was the nice O2 chap said that it was a credit for compensation (data outage in December)... 10% of £10 per month. I thought I must have been mistaken, but when I read my statement again, it is definitely a debit...!

Has anyone else had money TAKEN OFF their card instead of credited for this? It kind of adds insult to injury... but for a quid it's not really worth the hassle of picking up the phone again.

I just thought I'd check if I'm the only one. Thanks

No, mine was definitely a credit.

Hi Marjo, on the MyO2 web interface it has credited £1 to the account, however on my credit card bill it's a debit. For a quid I can't really be bothered to call the credit card company etc, but I thought I would see if any one else had this issue in case it was a bigger deal.

@confuseddotcom

If it appears with a minus in front of it ie -£1.00 then that actually is a credit from O2.

I know that's confusing. It took me ages to work that out wink

PS... Apologies. Just read your post about how it appeared on your credit card...Banana

I found that minus sign very confusing too @Cleoriff however o2 have their own style, doesn't fit with normal accounting practice.😊

Well the minus sign never confused me as I'm sure I've seen it elsewhere in the past. Though I agree with you @TallTrees it's not normal accounting practice.
