Update on Disputed Charge

Just an update. I just got off the phone with Discover. They issued me a permanent credit for the amount and the issue is closed. She explained to me that if it is under $10.00, they usually just issue a permanent credit where if it is above $10.00, they investigate it (or maybe they issue a temporary credit and investigate it, I forget which) and make a determination. So, I got my money back. Thanks Discover.

My PayPal and eBay accounts remain unaffected. It may be because Discover just refunded me and didn’t contact them. Who knows.

I’m sorry I am gonna have to leave them. I’m on an account with my Dad and I will be switching to accounts where I am on the account alone. I tried to get a Discover card on my own, but they won’t give me one. Maybe one day.
