PS Negative Balance - Advice?
As a birthday gift I gave a friend $150 to play on PS--he didn't want to create his own account, so I allowed him to use mine and to keep whatever winnings because I was currently focusing on my BR at FT. Anyway, I deposited the money around Dec. 15th and the poor guy had a bad run and lost it all. Oh well, at least he had fun (I hope).
Anyway, I never see that deposit on my bank statement, and then I go to check out the account and I now have a -$150 balance, along with an email saying that the deposit wasn't processed due to Reason: Transaction not Processed. There's nothing wrong with my bank account--all info was correct and I have plenty of funds, and nothing's wrong with my deposits, no returned check fees, etc. Also, the email didn't seem to be 'blaming' me, it really just seemed like they were trying to say that they just forgot to charge me.
So, they're asking that I make another deposit to clear the negative balance.
I'm too well brought up to 'steal,' but I am wondering what exactly would happen if I just, say, didn't correct the negative balance and didn't play on PS anymore? Don't yell at me--I AM planning on just trying to fix the situation and give them the money, but technically, if they screwed up and didn't charge me, what would happen if I just didn't deposit anymore? Has anyone been in this situation before?
Also, if eChecks is one of my only options for depositing, how am I going to trust that if I try to deposit using that method again to clear the negative balance, it will work this time? Seems like an endless circle of fail, PS.
Will probably end up just resolving the balance, unless someone tells
me that I can easily get away with what was their mistake. Probably not. Maybe $5, but not $150.
