Kasikorn canceled a transaction of my airline ticket

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

While in Central America, I bought a ticket for $700 on the website on an airline - Iberia. Right before my flight I found out that my ticket has been canceled - in the airport they told me; in the  hotline of the aircompany they told me that it was my bank who marked a transaction as being a fraud one.

 

No email from nobody - not from the airline, not from Kasikorn.

 

 

But, right after the purchase I received email, the number of reservation, etc -- "All good, your ticket has been confirmed".

 

 

 

My balance now N - $700, that is, the money hasn't been returned.

 

 

I can call to Thailand to Kasikorn, but I'd prefer not to because it'll be expensive. And if there's no necessity.

 

1) Should I wait for my money to return? Is it the airline - Iberia - that will have to return me the money, right?

 

2) Why has it been marked as such? I've been using Kasikorn for years, including my current country, many times. In different countries too.

Although I usually make way cheaper purchases. But while in Thailand I bought a ticket to Central America for $500 - without a problem, last year.

If you don't want to call Kasikorn, why not at lease email them to get the ball rolling ?

   If they initially got the money, but the payment was cancelled afterwards...then they don't have the money...so I doubt they will be returning money they don't have?

I can.

It takes them long to respond. And usually they respond with "we can't discuss that on email, it's a private info, call us" for many types enqueries.

I don't know. The ticket was confirmed initially.

Strange. Why did you pay with Kasikorn? Do you have a Kasikorn bank card? Kasikorn has always been good, but when I purchase on line I use my US based cards. I had a problem with Dusit hotels recently, but it was on the Dusit end, but I was never charged

Strange. With what should I have paid? With your bank cards? I wouldn't mind.

Did you inform Kbank you were travelling ? As for the airline thats an automated system and if the payment was cleared the confirmation would be auto produced. If the bank later cancelled due to security, the funds are withdrawn from the airline and ticket cancelled. 

 

You should contact the bank before you get any further issues as your card may well be blocked completely if fraud is suspected.

I’m not sure why you would hesitate to call Kasikorn and spend some dinero to get an answer.  $700.00 is a fairly substantial sum.

Follow kbank on Twitter, you can private message them on there, I had a problem  with my on line banking, money got lost, they couldn't have been more helpful and responsive, tried their best to sort it out, phoned me etc, and prompt replies..

Use Skype or another VOIP service to make your call.

Yep, I can't understand a bank that regards a private message on a social media platform as a more secure means of communication than email.

 

According to the OP.

Your OP is in several parts, to which are you rudely referring?
