Ain't seen nothing yet...?

I notice that there are (rightfully) a lot of complaints about some smartasses 'equaling' the UA$ to the 'euro'.

Well, I was going mad about this myself a couple of years ago - wrote to 'moregonzo.com' about it, asking how they could justify it, and asked if they charged their prospective Japanese customers the same (numerical) amount in Yen.

Surprise, Surprice (!): NO REPLY was received.

It seems to be getting worse:

At 'club Jenna" (if you join from the UK) you may pay up to 120% (ONEHUNDRED AND TWENTY PERCENT!) more in GBP than you would have to pay in the US$ zone:

Trial in the US$ zone: $9.86...

In the UK it is GBP6.95 (at present = $13.35) - up 50%.

Monthly fee - if you join from the US$ it is $19.95 , but if you join from the UK...

...it is GBP 22.95 (=$44.05), which is 120% above the US$ prise.

Apart from having noticed that 'Jenna' lost her marbels a couple of years ago - exemplified by her 'Punk' stile (piercings and all) in "Jenna loves Briana"...

In my visdom I like to add:

"Caveat Emptor"

"Look after your pennies - and the pounds will take care of themselves."

I.e. Don't go there! Edited on Aug 09, 2008, 06:30pm

A warning about CCBill's usuries to residents outside of the US$ zone...

On many websites I have noticed that CCBill charge in one's local currency - in my case, in GBP.

I thought that this was a 'nice' (and convenient) service.

But, this is a typical example of "THE WOLF CLOTHED AS A SHEEP"!

Working out what it should cost in GBP, and compare the result with what CCBill charges; I found that CCBill is slapping on 39+% above the basic rate of exchange.

More than a week ago I sent an email to CCBill, titled 'usury', asking how they could justify this exorbitant fee.

Surprise, surprise, CCBill did not reply - did not even bother with supplying the standard bullshit one is used to from banks...

In summary: they have shown; not only are they committing 'daylight robbery' but the 24/7 'service', they brag about, is @ their discretion (And convenience!) but may well be 0/7.

Sorry, I am in the wrong place.

The right place is way up this list - where it now is located. Edited on Aug 04, 2008, 02:41pm
