Question: In some cases Visa Debit may be rejected but funds are still taken/withdrawn from the tenants' bank account.
Please Note: NO FUNDS WERE ACTUALLY TAKEN IN THE SCENARIO ABOVE
There were only pre-authorizations done which are immediately followed by requests for authorization reversals. Unfortunately with Visa Debit cards funds can be held by the bank itself (even with pre-authorization) as they are directly linked to a bank account. The bank statement only shows one days worth of transactions; it is best if the tenant/client can get at least a couple of weeks after the transaction date to confirm funds being deposited back or contact the bank directly for further information.
