    Robbed in Rome VRBO - Any Recourse?

    If your HO insurance policy has a $1000 deductible you won’t actually be getting much out of that claim. Been there, Corp almost always wins in theses cases.

    Southwest Airlines did not cancel my tickets over the phone and now marked it as a No Show

    SW offers cancel for credit up until 10 minutes before the flight is scheduled for takeoff. Quite generous. If you did not check on your reservation after you spoke with the CS rep, then it looks like you did indeed lose any expectation of a credit.

    well - oops. often, people confuse credits with refunds, so guess that was where my head was.

    Well if you got a true refund then yes, they would show up on credit card. Mostly though, any changes or cancellations just get you a credit or a voucher with the airline. Since this is an issue with SW, it is most likely an airline credit we are talking about, unless PAX bought s fully...

    True but airlines refunds or credits don’t show up on your credit card. They are credits with the airline and are for only the named passenger, unless the airline allows name changes (some for a fee as Frontier does).

    Horrible experience with American Airlines

    It is possible that some of these items could technically be called ‘electronics’ and not be covered per their rules about what is covered/not covered in checked baggage.

    Walmart pay card can't verify online account help

    If the taxpayer assigned the tax refund to the Walmart card herself, as was previously reported, how the heck did the tax man get involved to the point of entering her email address incorrectly?

    Southwest Airlines

    I should clarify. I travel frequently between south FL and Denver. I have a home in both areas. If a frontier flight is cancelled, on either end, I just go home. It is not a big problem. - I don’t travel last minute, meaning I can wait to get ‘home’ in either direction. - right now...

    Walmart pay card can't verify online account help

    None of this explains how or why the tax man got ahold of her tax refund or, how much of a fee he charged her to do this. Is anyone able to get a refund “assigned” to them, bypassing the taxpayer? This just all seems odd to me. Especially, as she reports that he is unwilling to fix his error.

    Paypal holding my funds

    @crawford5153 - you really MUST verify your bank account correctly. OR, use the same bank account you used for the previous sale that did get your funds to you in a timely manner. All the letters in the world are not going to help if you do not have a VERIFIED bank account which Paypal CAN use...

    Walmart pay card can't verify online account help

    Wow, I’m befuddled. How does a private person issue a Walmart card, and how did you find out the email address mistake? I don’t see how you can even be sure that the $6400 is on that walmart card. Sounds like a scam to me. How did this private person get your refund? Did you sign it over to...

    Stolen money from my suitcase

    Mike, I am really sorry this happened to you, but why on earth would you leave $160 in your room, especially in ‘this day & age?’ $160 is a huge temptation for a (most likely) minimum wage working person. If thefts are occurring regularly and management is ignoring it, this a a very bad thing...

    Southwest Airlines

    I’m not sure SW can stil be considered a ‘discount carrier.’ You need to check the prices at their current rates. High prices, routing flights for long distances which means traveling all day. Sure bags fly free but that isn’t enough to make up for the angst. EarlyBird now costs $25-30 each...
