secretly charged for payng by card
i went out last night & got a taxi home. i was given a price when i called to book, this price was included in a confirmation email, and visable on the drivers screen.
i offered to pay by card and was told i need to follow the link in a text message to pay by card. i clicked the link to airpay and was taken to a simple screen to fill in my bank details but no mention of the ammount being paid.
after typing in my card details i was taken to a confirmation screen showing the ammount paid which was more than qouted.
im sure businesses had to make it clear to customers that they would be charged a fee for paying by card before taking a payment, but that all ended in january 17th 2018 when it became illegal to take payments for this.
is it just me or is charging this illegal and not telling customers until after the payment has been made nothing but a sneaky scam?
