I'm curious to see what their response will be. It is up to them to prove that the charge is legit. However, if they do have some kind of proof which of course will not be legit then I probably will have to take further action. I made it clear to my bank that if there is proof provided it will definately be fraud so it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Billy is a crook! This same thing happened -- actually is happening -- to me. I was in AC about a month ago and after returning home I noticed an unauthorized charge from Billy's store on my credit card. I disputed the charge and was reimbursed and I just received a call today from my credit card company informing me that Billy's store just charged my card $250. Shame on you Billy!

Wow!! I wonder how many others there are out there. This clearly proves it wasn't a mistake.

I don't think it is appropriate to be spreading such stories unless you have completed your investigation.

My debit card has just had 3 fraudulent charges made to it in the US (and I am residing in Belize.) The only reason the charges stopped was because the account was drained. I have my card in my possession.

One of the charges is from a Walmart Super Center - do I think WALMART did it on purpose? No!

Somebody is the crook - but I don't know who and I can't go out there publicly shouting Walmart stole from me because that would be foolish, naive and slanderous.

Do you think a crooked employee at Billys store might be involved? Ummm,maybe. Hey, maybe Billy is a crook, but I wouldn't start lynching him and yanking his credit card machine and trade license just yet.

My daughter, that lives in the UK and her boyfriend both had their debit cards charged in the US even though they had the cards in their possession and they don't ever purchase on line with those cards. They figure that a clothing store that they went to in the UK had an employee that scanned their cards and then shared it within a network so that charges in the US started being made.

Hey there are a lot of crooks out there and they have some ingenious methods

I do think it's a crooked employee involved and I will be sure to post the outcome here. I think it's more than coincidental that now there are 2 of us with the same issue, same store, less than a month apart. There are probably several more, they just don't read or post here.

It's in the vicinity of El Patio and The Rocks. I don't know the exact street address but it's a very short walk from the hotel I always stay at. It's one block over from Barrier Reef Drive.

Oh, I know which one it is, I guess it goes on everywhere, sad to see it happening down here though.

I visited that store my first day on AC last month and bought 2 jugs of water.He rang up the deposit , which is 25 BZ each, as $ 50 US each, I am not kidding..I told him to put the bottles back in the rack and left. His sign is a blue Crystal water sign, on the lee side of the street.It was no mistake.
