Just before the arrival of Clark Peterson’s Model Y Tesla last Thursday, he didn’t hesitate to give Tesla his routing and checking account number for full payment of over $ 70,000.

Then he got an unexpected call stating that it had been charged twice.

Peterson said Tesla had withdrawn more than $ 140,000 from his bank account.

“And I said okay, please put that back and the Tesla person said, oh no, just call your bank and see if they can stop the payment. And I said it was a bank transfer, he was already gone and he said no, don’t call your bank and of course the money had already left our account and was in Tesla’s account ”, Peterson said.
