Those charges do seem high and non-justified.
If you feel that the charges are anything more than fair, I would suggest that you file a complaint with the RPA. This will allow you to formally dispute the charges and protect you from it getting reported to the credit bureaus and damaging your credit.
You’ll either need to suck it up and pay what they’re asking or fight for your right to fair charges. If you do file a complaint you will be required to pay a $35 filing fee.
Let me know how it turns out.
