    Debit card transaction im not sure about - do you know what is could be? 6th Apr 08 at 11:20 PM
    I have a debit on my statement which shows as:

    Widnes
    Debit Card - Hme Rtl Grp Cards

    It is for 20

    It is on a card that I don't really use and I can't remember if I bought anything for 20 that day.
    Does anyone know that 'Widnes' is. I asume that Hme Rtl Grp is argos or something but im sure i have'nt spend 20 there this month.


    Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to call my bank if it is something i have bought but forget about.

    Thanks, faerie x

    Widnes is a town in Cheshire. Home Retail Group is the company that owns Argos and Homebase, so sounds like you're on the right lines...

    Your debit card has been used to make a £20 payment to either an Argos or Homebase store card.
    These are issued by:-
    Home Retail Group Card Services Ltd, Royal Avenue, Widnes WA88 1AL

    Widnes as Sammz says is a town in Cheshire.

    Thanks everyone, I think i have solved this now

    My partner has an argos card that i made a payment on about 3 weeks before the date on my statement. Seems they were a bit slow in taking it out.

    Thanks guys, Faerie x
