This is the famous mattress story that I talked about in another section of this site.
Ripped Off By DCC: We went to a LARGE department store to buy a mattress. We told them “PAY IN THAI BAHT”. Of course, they know better than us and charged us in USD because our card was a US card. Perfect logic right??
We refused to sign. We refused to accept their explanations. We sat at the desk and continued to say “call your manager” — something they did not want to do. In fact, they called someone who pretended to be their manager until they realized there were getting no where.
I filed complaints with the head office of this company.
They charged us with DCC: $1,239.37. We had them void the charge.
The corrected charge was $1,168.39USD.
THEY WERE RIPPING US OFF FOR $70.98USD! Yes, you are reading that correctly! The difference between what they should have charged us and what they tried to charge us using the dynamic currency conversion ripoff was more than $70USD!!!
