Hello! I am a California licensed attorney admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.
This appears to be a classic breach of contract. A breach of contract just simply means that one party was obligated to perform and they have either have not performed or have said that they will not perform. In this case, if they had your card on file, but failed to charge it and then are asking for additional money in such a high amount after the fact, then it is a breach of contract.
Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for advising of a breach of contract (click here). It's a bit easier (and cheaper) than going through litigation and I have seen it be effective in the past. If this doesn’t work, sadly, the only other option is to either go through an informal mediation or file a lawsuit in your local court.
Follow up questions are free, so please feel free to ask away. You can also click here in the future to request me individually. If you don’t have any additional questions, were you satisfied with my service today?
That sounds great. You can always just come back to this URL and ask a follow-up question. Where you can always contact our customer care team and they will be able to direct you back to this conversation potentially.
That's a good question. If we were to exchange information than I would have to charge you for a premium service according to the website rules. It's $10 to exchange. Are you okay with that?
My apologies for the confusion. The website requires that if we are going to exchange private information that it is considered a premium service. If you would like to accept a premium service, then it is just 10 additional dollars and we can exchange private email or phone number information. Is this something that you would be interested in?
Also, please understand that you have to give me a moment. I have to type up my responses and it takes a moment to type it up and respond back to you. So, please give me more than one or two minutes to respond.
Not a problem let me know if that of this question and hopefully another California attorney will be able to assist you.
