We've identified a payment fault and have fixed it today.

The full amount has been refunded back to your bank account or

We recognise that this may have caused you inconvenience and we

We have identified what went wrong and have now fixed it.

Yours sincerely,

Yup me too. Looks like the normal bill but taken out too soon.

Any company can stuff up, but not all of them deal with their customers in such a straightforward and honest way.

(I'm being nice on the basis that the problem is fixed - I reserve the right to change my opinion!)

Not a Vodafone customer, but I'd expect them to offer a token credit.

I had ANZ do something similar recently, they rang me, apologised, and put a $50 credit into my account before I'd even noticed the problem!

I got one as well - was wondering if I was special or if it was a widespread problem!

The email is not a hoax and refunds were done a few hours later to impacted customers

I got the same email as OP but certainly don't expect any credit for it.

If this did happen to everyone that has a Direct Debit or Variable Credit Card payment with VF then it it would simply cost them way too much to credit everyone affected. Especially since this issue would of had no impact for most customers. 

I assume that ANZ's issue was isolated to your account only so a credit would not have hit the company's books too hard.
