Chairs recovered for agreed price. Credit card charged $100 more than receipt. Said they made math error. Is this legal?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Chandler, AZ

Mom agreed to the original amount. Receipt was drawn up. Mom paid more than half up front. When checking credit card statement discovered additional $100 was charged after completion of job. Called store. Was told a math error was made. They said they called and left message of additional charge. Mom did not receive the message. Is this disputable? Legal? Good business practice?
