Myki Machine swallowed cash money , no receipt

I recently tried to top my Myki card at the machine , using cash which was a bit of a rookie error it seems! The machine took the cash , could not read it , did not give it back and did not top up my Myki!

I tried to contact someone at the station regarding this issue , and they said I would need a receipt after I explained it did not give me one. The person behind the ticket booth said I would have to contact customer services via the phone

Step 1 ) tried to call 1800 800 007 (6am – midnight daily )  , go through to an agent explained the issue , she said she would take down my details and raise a case , she put me on hold , then the line cut out 🙂

Step 2 ) Retry a call and resubmit the case , I have to explain the location of the machine , I took a photo of it , as the lady at the station booth couldn’t give me an identifier for it

Glady they accepted my dispute and offered to either refund the money or credit my Myki which I did the latter
