Thank you for this post. This is really good information!
I don’t even have a Doordash account, and today found pending charges of over $2000 on my debit card from it. I was able to dispute the charges with Doordash after closing out all of my bank card stuff and hopefully I will help catch a criminal BEFORE I get charged.
I must say, it is really bad practice for banks to allow the debit transactions to happen anyway, and only provisionally refund your money after the fact. There ought to be a federal law against this!
So many people are being cheated by door dash. What is wrong with this company? Ready to file class action suit.
I found a charge for $70.16 dated June 23, 2022 from DD Doordash Luke on my credit card account. I have NEVER used doordash, I do NOT have any account with them. i notified my CC company, their response was to cancel my current card and issue me a new card.
