    Wrongly charged on credit card

    Wrongly charged on credit card 17th Mar 17 at 7:37 PM
    I authorised an initial payment on my credit card for my dads insurance in which I made it clear to them that I have nothing to do with the policy and all following payments should go to his card.
    The following month they charged my card again in which after talking to them on the phone they admitted it was their mistake and refunded the money.
    The following month he cancelled his insurance as he had to sell his car and they charged my credit card again with a big cancellation fee without my permission, again but this time no apology or anything.

    Is there anything I can do about this? Thanks

    Yes complain to the insurer and ask for a sum in compensation to cover your expenses.
    If they don't play ball tell your card issuer that you did not authorise the payment and ask for it be returned or......................................as your dad caused all this why not get him to pay you!!

    I agree, it sounds like the money is owed so why not get your dad to give you the money? He's going to pay it one way or another and simply giving you the cash is the simplest way for everyone involved.
