Check your credit card receipts

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I don’t like Jamaica; I LOVE Jamaica!

Went grocery shopping at Progressive in Ocho Rios on Tuesday and used my credit card. Instead of charging the total of J$1,665, the cashier swiped US$1,665.26.

At the time of writing, it’s Friday, October 4 and I’m still working with them to get the refund. The people at Progressive are doing their best to help me. They’re in talks with their bank, Scotiabank.

I’m hoping that it gets resolved as soon as possible. They wiped me out.

Make sure to check the bottom of your credit card receipt to ensure that you are charged the right currency denomination. JMD or USD is marked at the bottom.
