Today while viewing my online statement, I came across a fee labelled "International Transaction" for £1.50. What the heck? "I haven't bought anything recently", I thought to myself.
I have heard of banking scams where people take small amounts of money from many accounts in the hope of not being noticed - maybe that is what was happening?
I scratched my head for a few minutes until I read the transaction immediately under the suspect one.
"BIOLITE US 179.00"
The suspect charge was the exchange rate fee for sending money to an American company. That they've taken the money out means my stove has shipped.
I can't wait!
