Why was I billed $41 dollars I didn't accept any offers
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 11 months ago

No idea.... Contact customer service. I am a user of the site like yourself and see no accepts or credits on my end.... I do know the site holds a deposit but you need to talk to them as the experts know nothing about that side of things.
