I made a boo-boo. It is 7:30am, so I will have to wait to call the bank. GRR. I want to fix this.
In our personal bank account's on-line bill pay, I paid $60 to an account that doesn't exist anymore. My credit card was bought out by Bank of America, and I got a new account number when I got the card. I never got around to deleting the account from the bill pay list.
I meant to pay $60 to the account that was listed above that one.
So $60 has been withdrawn from our account to pay an account that doesn't exist. I am "hoping" that the bank will say that when the credit card company gets it, they will reject the payment and send it back. A girl can hope!
I am resolving that I may have to pay another $60 to the right creditor to cover the payment I was trying to make....and deal with getting my other $60 back. In the short term....pay out $120.
Anyone with experience with this?
ETA: Called the bank...they said they couldn't do anything because it was an EFT. They told me to call the CC company. Called the old company, who said that the payment hasn't hit their account yet, so they couldn't do anything until tomorrow. Additionally, they said even though the account was purchased by another company....it is still in existance and blah blah blah.
Then they tried to get me to use the card.....promotion rate.....blah blah blah.
