I travelled yesterday (14-10-2014) to Maastricht from Eindhoven to attend the TEDx conference.
I could check in at the Eindhoven station, but I could NOT check out at Maastricht (i'm not quite sure why, but I think it was because I had to reload the card).
I attended the conference and I took the return train to Maastricht at 19h (I have weekend vrij).
I went to the station and I loaded my card with money and then I checked in at the station and got on the train.
When the ticket checker came, I showed my card and the machine displayed that I had checked out rather than checking in!!
I tried to explain what happened to the ticket checker, but I was treated rudely and I was made to feel like I was travelling without a ticket. I then received a fine for 35eur + the ticket fare between Maastricht to Eindhoven!.
The number on the fine card is H 033656.
Could you kindly look into this? I had a really nice day at the TED event, but it was ruined due to this experience. I am willing to pay the fine if it can be shown to be my mistake. But since the machine let me check in at Eindhoven, I do not see how can I be held responsible?!.

If our ticket controller can't find a checkin, they will give you a fine.
Can you send me a private message with your address, name, and date of birth? After I have received your private message, I will look into it.
