Presumably you know all of the AMEX cards you have used over the last 12 months, and if you don't, AMEX should (assuming this wasn't some prepaid card). I think your first step is with AMEX to ascertain what cards you used, and what one contains the original $3200 charge that you say has not been refunded. If the last 4-digits of this card are different from those stated by UA, bring this to UA's attention. That should start the correction process. If AMEX has no record of any card to which you charged the $3200, maybe this charge wasn't made to an AMEX card, and start checking your VISA or MasterCards. Until you can develop some documentation to show to UA where the refund was supposed to go, why should UA presume it went to wrong location?
I agree, but I wonder whether the mystery card could be a corporate travel agent, OLTA, or even a regular human personal travel agent.

Also, could it be a debit card or some sort?

Has OP searched for the original ticket receipt in his/her email? That should show at least the last four digits of the credit card, which would be a start in checking whether UA has made a mistake.
