Drivers caught out by new £100 card ‘charges’ at petrol pumps

Drivers have been caught out on new measures in place at petrol pumps which ‘charge” them £100.

Changes brought in by Visa and MasterCard means £100 is automatically taken from your account as part of a pre-authorisation check, reports Birmingham Live.

The previous amount was £1 before the exact amount would then be debited from your account.

Checks are carried out to ensure that drivers have enough money in their account to pay for the fuel. The cash never leaves the customer’s account and they are only charged for the amount of fuel that they have filled up with.

However, customers cannot spend the ring fenced cash until it has been released.

Almost one million people across the UK could be missing out on thousands of pounds-worth of Universal Credit payments, a charity has revealed.

Turn2Us estimates that a staggering £15 billion has been left unclaimed, which averages out at approximately £2,900 per unclaimed benefit, simply because many people currently working do not realize, or think, they are eligible to apply for Universal Credit.

A common reason for people missing out on financial support from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is due to lack of understanding about Universal Credit eligibility requirements and how even if someone is in work, they could qualify for the benefit.
