Ridiculously double charge, don't give card detail

Awful service... They double charged me... I gave my card details over the phone... They charged on the day that I stayed there and one month later they charged me again... They don't answer phone neither email... Not reliable, don't trust it... I'm having troubles with my account at the moment... I have my money short and also I have to pay fee from my bills due to my short money in my account... That's ridiculous... Now o have to contact lawyer to replace money... But the time spend, the worries and the damage of my image will never be replaced...
