3AW listener angered when his one-off donation was withdrawn again
A man has been left angry after his one-off donation was withdrawn again.
3AW listener Ray spent $125 on tickets in the Royal Melbourne Hospital home lottery in April, but was shocked to find the charity had charged his credit card for the same amount again in July.
Ray told Tom Elliott he was happy to help the good cause – but didn’t intend to the payments to be ongoing.
“It’s almost deception or fraud,” Ray said.
“I didn’t sign up to be a member for life.”
