Angry university is a friggin scam



I have a meal plan at school that has this thing called flex dollars. basically an account with money in it to purchase food. I had about $600 to start off with. About a week ago, i purchased a coffee and it told me i had about $90 left on my card so i'm like cool... that'll last me the rest of the year for coffee. Everymorning i buy coffee and a bagel. Insanely high price for it but meh... i gotta get rid of it somehow. First off they tell us we can use the flex dollars to buy school supplies. get there we can't. what assholes .

so tuesday night i was falling asleep trying to study for my chem midterm so i decide to go buy a coffee and for some reason my account is at $0... i'm like wtf... theres no way i spent $90 in like 3 days.. considering that i'm not here on fridays and weekends. I'm sitting there alll puzzled. She said go to the Chartwells office to get it sorted out.

I go to the office today and they explained that there was a glitch in the system that didn't send a signal from the coffee and bagel place to the main computer so it wasn't deducting money... why is that on my reciept money was being deducted. So they got the system up and running and they updated account. Now it says I ****ing owe them $114 b/c i'm at a negative account. They expect me to pay that money back or else... i dunno... but why should i pay for their own mistakes?! i'm not paying shit

what should i do?

Well did you really drink all the coffee they said you did? if so - then sucker up and pay.

If not - go talk to them about it.

^^^ how do you spend $700 on just coffee and bagels? i'm 100% positive that i didn't spend that much. I did buy stuff for other people too but not enough to add up to $700.

^^^ i did... but they said there's a whole chunk missing from a months worth b/c the system was down and only has the money deducted from. (sounds fishy)... and also he said i used it yesterday to make a purchase and went through. and i didn't use it yesterday b/c i didn't have time to eat.

maybe you need to cut back on the spending? maybe u dont realize how much u spend, dunno

if you did buy the coffee's and bagels and u owe them 114 or whatever, they wont let u graduate if u owe them money, so no use not paying

If they don't have the records, tell them to give the money back. Also, they are in for an AUDIT by revenue canada if someone rats them out. No records = BIG PROBLEMS.

They claimed you used it when in fact you did not. They're RIPPING YOU OFF bud.

Start a class action lawsuit against them unless they refund EVERYTHING THEY CANNOT PROVE WAS 100% LEGIT.

I would be pissed ! ! !

It's their fault . . . . they need a new system ! !
I would fight it ! !

With a money system or credit . . they should have backed up their system some how . . .
