The DCC scam is spreading

Jump to last reply

So, I was booking a room in London for three nights at one of the LSE student dorms. I've stayed there (Grosvenor House on Drury Lane) before, and it's a good deal for London - en-suite single with full kitchen for 64.80 GBP a night, paid in advance. That's 284.86 USD for three nights according to xe.com.

The site offered me the choice of paying in USD instead of GBP. How kind of it. It would have cost me an extra 11 USD! (I was using a card with zero foreign transaction fees.)

I noticed last year that DCC seemed to be spreading. Take this as a warning to more vigilant this year.
