    in debt to...- prepostion

    Hii guys,
    please help me. I this sentence correct?

    "You are still in debt to me with the amount 45AUD"

    What I am trying to imply this situation: My gym withdrew an amount of 45 AUD by mistake - without any authorization, from my account. They have not credited it back to my account yet. Is the prepostion "with" right in this context? Anyway, i courious what another prepostion is linked with the phrase "in debt".

    thank you

    You are still indebted to me. You owe me 4SAUD.

    Re: in debt to...- prepostion

    The preposition I would use with "in debt to me" is "for"---"you are still in debt to me for 45AUD."

    Another way would be to phrase it passively, like this: "My account still shows a debit for 45AUD..." or "still isn't showing the credit for 45AUD..." something like that. That way you don't have to use the pronoun "you." Of course you might want to say "you," depending on how angry you are :)

    Just my two cents :)
