Navy MWR, youth programs mistakenly overcharged at Pacific bases
U.S. personnel throughout the Pacific recently received duplicate charges on debit and credit card purchases over a six-month period at several base facilities because of a computer error, Navy officials said Wednesday.
The glitch potentially affects anyone among the tens of thousands of people collectively stationed in Japan, South Korea, Guam, Singapore and the Naval Postgraduate School in California, who charged goods and services between Jan. 22 and June 23 at the Navy’s youth programs or Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities.
Customers were mistakenly charged at venues including the Navy’s child care and youth centers, auto and hobby shops, marinas, movie theaters, tour ticket offices and outdoor recreation centers, the officials said.
Navy Installations Command’s treasury department has identified the erroneous charges and contacted Bank of America to refund customers’ money.
