The strange saga of many Tesla buyers who used to pay for their cars using a direct bank transfer, later to find out they were charged twice, is over. “Everyday Chris” posted on the Tesla forum that eventually came in contact with someone at Tesla, and received a refund for a $ 56,579 charge for about five business days after the problem began.
