Hi, there Let’s say you are looking through your credit card statement and you see a charge to Greyhound (the bus travel company), even though you’ve never taken a Greyhound bus. How could you express that? Do any of these sentences work? “I am being charged to/by Greyhound even though I’ve never taken it” “I’ve never taken/ridden (a) Greyhound” “I’ve never charged anything to Greyhound” “I’ve never bought anything from Greyhound” “I’ve never bought any tickets from Greyhound” “I’m being charged to/by Greyhound but I’ve never hired them” What would you say? Thank you!

Hi Hernandez, The exchange below is one way to word it: There’s a recent charge on my statement from your company that’s incorrect. I’ve never used Greyhound. Please let me know who I can speak with to remove it.

I'd probably use “I’ve never bought anything from Greyhound”. If you just said "tickets from Greyhound", it leaves open the possibility that you might have bought something else from them (though I don't know what else they sell).

The second expression is what I use every time I see charges on my bank statement that I don’t remember, I would be like, “I’ve never bought this item before”

There’s a charge from Greyhound that isn’t mine.
