Legacy collect calls - Excess charge on credit card for local phone call

I made a local phone call to Jersey City phone from Newark Airport using a pay phone. As I did not have adequate change of USD 1.00, I used my Citi Bank Credit card. The phone message said that I would be charge USD 0.50 extra for the use of credit card instead of cash, which I agreed for paying that additional amount of USD 0.50, which works out to a total cost of USD 1.50 for the phone call. I got an email message form citi card bank credit service that an amount of USD 8.46 instead of USD 1:50. This is outrageous and I am indeed pissed off. Legacy collect calls have to credit back the excess amount to my credit card account. Hope they take an early action. Dr. Bindu Madhav Uppaluri Bangalore, India
