<My question is, can they do that? How can the sale be 100% final for me, yet over one month later - without any warning - they're allowed to charge a random $200 to my credit card?>This raises all kinds of red flags. First, call your credit card company, and tell them in no uncertain terms that you did/do not authorize this charge. I suspect they will be as concerned as I am, because if vendors could do this kind of thing at will, people all over the world would stop using credit cards. CC companies are not in the business of helping others to rob you. And this is theft. It's so much safer for the thief than carting a gun into a liquor store.Second, since this is a chain, alert higher management. They may or may not be sterling characters themselves, but this store manager may be looking at absconding with as much other peoples' money as he can get his mitts on. If that's the case, he won't care whether it's your money or the store's money.UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you pay this. If your refusal to pay results in black marks on your credit record, keep records, and get your day in court. You could wind up with them paying you damages.
