Tesla is enduring an onslaught after certain customers apparently had payments withdrawn twice.
One Southern California man is among those revealing this issue with the Palo Alto-based car company.
Not long before Clark Peterson’s Model Y Tesla showed up last Thursday, he didn’t mull over giving Tesla his directing and financial records number for the full installment of more than $70,000.
“It’s an amazing online process where you don’t need to address a person. They disclose to you they will carry the car to your home,” Peterson said.
At that point, he got a surprising call that he’s been twofold charged.
Peterson said Tesla pulled out more than $140,000 from his bank account.
“Furthermore, I said well OK, simply kindly set that back and the Tesla individual said, goodness, simply call your bank and check whether they can stop installment. Furthermore, I said it’s a wire move, it’s now gone and he said no, no call your bank and obviously the money had effectively left our account and was in Tesla’s account,” Peterson said.
Peterson said he attempted over and again to talk with somebody yet wasted time.
“I got a call from somebody on Sunday who said we simply need to tell you we know about this and we are going to send it back soon. I requested that they put that in an email however I never got an email,” Peterson said.
He posted about the Tesla calamity on social media, and the reactions, he says, were numerous with individuals who said they encountered something very similar.
A few group have shared their accounts to YouTube and other social media destinations.
“I’m conversing with you folks since I would trust that Tesla fixes this issue and it doesn’t occur to some other individuals later on,” Peterson said.
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, has not openly remarked about the reports.
