Pre-paid e-toll fees 'disappear'

Jan 02 2014 18:30
Cape Town - Responses are flooding in from Fin24 users expressing their anger and frustration with the controversial new e-toll system in Gauteng.

A Fin24 user bought prepaid e-toll, but the amount was not reflected on his account. Now he is battling to get the money back. He writes:

I am a registered e-toll account holder.

At the beginning of December 2013 I topped up my prepaid account with R450 using a credit card as payment on their website.

This money was taken from my credit card, but never reflected as a credit on my e-toll account.

I then spent a day of being pushed from pillar to post, speaking to one person then another. I was told to wait a day.

By the second day there was still nothing showing and I needed to get around that day, so I tried loading another R450. This time it did reflect on my e-toll account.

I then received an e-mail stating that the R450 had now been reflected on my account.

I then began to try and explain that it was in fact the second purchase of R450 that went through and that they still owe me another R450.

To date I have received nothing from them and it appears I won't get my money back. Absa bank said they were unable to reverse the transaction.
