Shell Oil - Service
Shell Oil Company
Berry Rd and Robinson Avenue
United States
Phone: (405) 737-0402

I just today stopped to make a purchase of a full tank of gas. Purchase price was $3.48 cents per gallon that equals to the amount of $43.84 cents not to mention the two (2) beverage drinks I had planned on pruchasing. Most likely a total purchase amount of $45.32 cents. I was asked to submit information at the pump such as debit/ ATM card? I was using my Visa card and then it wanted my Zip code and that is when I turned the pump off and entered the service station to volumteer my information that I had come there to make purchases of gasoline and soft drinks and that I did not come there to give my life history or personal information that is of no ones business unless I volunteer to give it. IN OTHER WORDS I WAS RESTRAINED FROM MAKING A PURCHASE!!!
I understand it is your policy...IT IS NOT MINE! Customer friendly is the key to "continued" success. I am discouraged now of using a Shell Card, I am discouraged to waste my time and yours on information that pertains to nothing as far as making a product purchase with an advertized acceptance purchase by any of these cards pasted to the pump. Either you want my business or you do not. It makes no difference to me and 10's of thousand other honest hard working purchasing citizens of these United States. We go through life trying to eliminate inconvienences and not passively accept a inconvience that some nerdy, wing tipped, blue suit, red tie, middle management mooron decided to place before the board to gain attaboys or merits for some stupid nonsence plan that he thought of while pulling up sports scores on his cell phone. There is such a thing as KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid! There is another saying that makes so much sense...DO NOT FIX IT IF IT ISN'T BROKEN! I have been buying gasoline for 47 years ( I am 63) and I just can not imagine a Major Oil Company taking on such a ignorant policy of not producing a product over a 5 digit zip code refusal. Apparently there is a real lack of management skills in your organization and the man at the top will soon realize when the year in profit lines are not making double digits again. That is my say and I am sticking with it. Now you have the ball and you can continue being ignorant or find an itelligent form for the public to make purchases with out giving the world their personal history! I do not want to hear this is for Security reason. By me not having to give out information that I do not wish to give out has never in my 63 years prevented me from making purchases until this day in the year of 2008 when I...happened to choose a Shell Oil Company gas station for service. I can assure you that if I see a Shell Station anytime I drive down a boulevard...my reaction will be, look for a 7 -11.

Shell Oil - Price gouging!
Shell Oil
United States

The Shell gas station at the junction of Govenors Highway and Rt 30 in Matteson, IL is increasing their prices constantly by 4-5 cents per gallon more than any other local station. Today the price of regular gas at this station is $4.11 compared to other stations at $4.07. As a long time Shell credit card holder I will not use this station and instead will use BP or Safeway.
While I understand that the station owner can charge what they want I feel that gouging the cardholders is blot on the Shell Company name and in the present business scenario a diss-service to the public.

Your living 30 years ago. They want your zip code to protect the money in your account from somebody who has taken your card. This happens a lot and if they did not know your zip they can't use it anonymously. You would lose all your money if the card was stolen. Your just an old man anyway. The hospital staff already knows your personal info. Your zip code is not of national importance.

Country Shell - Cheating on gallons of gas
Country Shell
United States
Phone: 281/545-1955

I went to the Country Shell Gas Station located at 3535 F.M. 762 in Richmond Texas on 6/19/2008.
I own a 2007 Saturn Outlook. I pulled into the station to fill up my tank. When the handle "clicked" off, I went inside the store to pay for my gas on my Discover Card and I was stunned to hear it was $93.35. The cost of the gas was $3.899. The problem is, my tank can only hold 22 gallons of gas if it is BONE DRY!!! I was NOT empty!!! The gallons registered on my receipt was 23.942. I have NEVER put more than 21 gallons in my car... how could my car possibly hold this amount of gas?

I questioned the store clerk who did not speak English. I was so frustrated. I had to write my name on the back of a receipt and leave. All I can do is hope they CARE enough to contact me back. HA! I KNOW I have been ripped off at this gas station. Isn't gas high enough and aren't we all working HARD ENOUGH to make ends meet without this dishonesty???

Shell Gasoline Station - authorized charges
3500 High Street
United States

Less than an our ago, my daughter went to this service station to pump gas at a regular pump. A debit card was used and code entered for an outside sale. As prompted by direction, the selection (87 octane) was made and the gas was pumped ($26.00). After noticing that no receipt was given my daughter went inside to get a receipt. At that time a clerk said that she needed to have paid inside (but there was no direction posted outside with that instruction). The clerk asked for the card and scanned the card and my daughter had to enter her code. My daughter asked if she was being double charged for t he sale and she was assured by the clerk that only one charge of $26.00 was taken. then she gave my daughter a receipt.
Immediately after this my daughter went to the bank to make an addition withdrawal and found that her account was now negative because not only was the $26 dollar sale deducted but an additional $90 has been charged. It was proven at the bank that the $90 was deducted by that gas station. Immediately returning to and questioning the manager at the station about this charge/deduction, the manager said that the deduction was result as a $90 PRESCREEN that is automatically done when a debit transaction is done. WHAT IS THAT AND IS THAT A LEGAL ACTION. If it is should that consumer be informed prior to the "prescreen" deduction. THERE WAS NOT WARNING OR EXPLANATION GIVEN before or after this transaction to give option for authorization of deduction.
We are in this area for business and do not live here. We have limited funds and are not unable to get back to our home destination by the deadline we must meet to get to get work (5pm today). The manger said that the funds ($90) will be put back on the account probably sometime before the end of today. That puts us in a HORRIBLE situation and is not acceptable. Not only are we imposing on friends to leave their house open for us, will be missing a day's work and if the monies are not returned, are not able to pay the travel fees (gas and tolls) and may have to find a way to borrow for a hotel or someplace to sleep and food to eat until we can have our funds returned) Funds were available to cover the cost of the initial deduction of $26. Now not only is the account overdrawn but bank fees are being charged as well. This is in combination is the other concerns I have expressed. WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR THIS UNAPPROVED DEDUCATION FROM OUR ACCOUNT???

Shell Station King City Ca. - overcharging
Los Gatos
United States

Just stopped by the king city Ca. shell station. The gas price was more than fifty cents per gallon more than the current market price or any of the stations at the next exit. The bathroom was gross and the staff was the same. Shame on shell for allowing this rip off.

Dear sir,
I have received an SMS on my mobile No.9845795471, on 17th march 2009 at 18.25 hrs evening in India, that I have won 200, 000.00 GBP in the ongoing shell international mobile draws of U.K. to claim your prize please contact Rev.Peter Green on e-mail.spdcukmobiledraws@live.com.
I have sent this information to the above referred ID by e-mail, and soon I received Application for fund release under Ref.No SPDC-032009, and Mr.Peter Green has advised me to quote the application and to sent it to Nationwide Bank of London, .Hence I quote all the relevant and necessary information dis-closing all means and sent to the above said bank.There after the bank has advised me to sent any Identifying documents such as Driving licence, or Pass port, and so also to Certificate of winning issued by Shell petroleum development compay and so also Fund release order from british financial authority.But the documents such as driving licence and shell awards winning certificate was sent by me through scanning to the bank, but it was not possible to me to obtain fund release order because it was the mandatory document and I came to know from Rev.Peter Green that for obtaining the same I need a lawyer.But for this I sent e-mail to Shell petroleum /Rev.Peter Green and I stated that I was not in a position to come to U.K. and to obtain the same so also I am not in a position to obtain the same as I am residing far away from U.K. so also my financial status is not so sound to engage any lawyeer, so I request Mr.Rewv.Peter Green to do all the need full and to engage the lawyer and whatever the expenses will occur it may be paid from my winning prize towards his prescribed fees, and after deducting the same the winning amount may be sent to me back to India by my appointed means, but for this e-mail I have not received any answer fro m the shell petroleum company, so also I requested this fact to MR.Jonathan Graham who is lawyer who was suggested from Peter Green to be appointed, disclosing all the relevant facts, but Jonathan Graham has shurked and has whispered me that the prize amount is totally my prize and from it no any amount is to be deducted, and only and only when I will sent him 520 GBP towards the expenses of legal fees and other charg es to obtain Fund release order then only he will obtain the same and transfer my money as my appointed means, and he has also sent FRO form i.e. Fund release form by scanning .Further I came to know that the certificat e issued by Shell award is tampering and fake one, so as I am constrained to post my comment that this draw is fake and this certificat e is also bogus one, and so also from the complaints pending before this forum I came to know about its reality, and I have been alert.So my grievance is that this tendancy may be curbed.
