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

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?

Your mother can contest the additional credit card amounts and the credit card company will investigate. If it is truly a mathematical error, the merchant may prevail but it is worth disputing.
