If they do - it's illegal. See this thread


And 10% would be nothing short of extortion!

Its only 3% not 10%!!!!! That's normal for a lot of business doing international transactions as cost of living and cost of running business has gone up in general. Its an Australian owned resort.

So what if it's owned by people who once came from Australia. Does that make it legal in Fiji to charge an extra 3% elgrayce? Of course not.

And thankyou so much for joining TA today especially to tell us this on an old post.

What affliliation do you have?
