David's complaint against Currys PC World

David Parry


[RESPONDED] Unexpected Charge

Complaint against Currys PC World

I have just purchased an HP Desktop Computer from Currys. On returning home, I check my Bank Account to find a charge of £1.01p from Further investigation reveals it is a company used to verify personal details. I assume it is for Currys as I have made no other purchases. It would have been very helpful, and less worrying, if the Salesperson had explained that there was a charge, what it was for and how much it was.

I have the same amount showing on my debit card where I purchased a Google Home Mini on Monday from your East Kilbride store. How can I get this refunded, do I take receipt back into the store?

I have the same on my debit card. I did not purchase anything but did try and apply for credit online but it was giving me an error and said they couldnt help me at that time. Why is this and what is this for? I want a refund. I dont have a receipt but it shows on my online banking that money has come off my account. I'm not happy about this at all.


Hi Simone, It sounds like this is a Care Plan and not related to the credit search. Please email us on [email protected] and quote SPK181103. Please include a copy of your name and address in your email alongside this comment. Ollie.

Hi. A £ 8.99 charge has appeared on my debit card. I don't remember authorizing it. What is this debt?
