Just received a charge 15 months later

Postby skudera » Mon Aug 26, 2013 4:12 pm

I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this, but I have a question I'm seeing if anyone could help answer.

I booked my honeymoon February 2012 through AAA and put a deposit down (I believe $2,000). We traveled in August 2012 and were paid in full 30 days in advance. In May 2013, I saw a charge on my Amex from Liat airlines (the airline we used to connect between destinations) for $177. I immediately disputed the charge and a few months later, American Express said the charge was legit. They told me Liat performed an audit and noticed they didn't charge me ( don't know how that happened ), so now I'm stuck with this charge. I now understand they didn't charge me fully in February 2012, but to charge me 15 months later with no notification? Is that even legal? Is there a certain amount of time that can pass where I wouldn't be liable for their mess up?

Thanks for the help in advance,

If AMEX denied your dispute then it is likely that it is legit.

Were you originally quoted the rate when you booked this ticket?

Some companies have policies about how far back they will go on unbilled charges. Even with that, I think you would still be within their ability to invoice.
