I am currently trying to clear up an unauthorized charge to my cc too. I spend several months a year in Belize and it is just easier keeping records by using a cc.

Are you sure the extra charges aren't sercharges (sp?) or currency conversion fees that the credit card companies often add to foreign transactions?

Many times the charges do not get posted on the same date as you had the service. Sometimes there can be a big lag time - like a month or more. It is not usually the case these days but years back I never got charged for things till a month or 2 later.

I am fully aware of all the charges that can be added on, lapsed time for billing, etc. This is totally different.

I have also had credit card problems from use in Belize. Sometimes double charges and last week it was a cash advance that I never did. You should be very carefull and look over your statement carefully. This happens.

Please, please get in touch with the places that the charges appear to have come from before calling fraud!! The Atlantic Bank did major system (computer) changeover in late December and is having some difficulties with charges going onto credit cards that really didn't. We have had 3 guests let us know and have been able to clear it up. It MAY not be that you are being intentionally screwed....

I accidently screwed myself once and I can assure you that it wasn't any fun. Now that I have drawn you in smile I was attaching a mail box to a post and the screwdriver slipped. The damn thing went right up my nose and scraped along the cartilage that runs down the middle. It was a bloody mess, but I could garner no sympathy from anyone because they would burst out laughing when I would tell them what happened.
