QuestionsMoney-ShoppingWas I scammed at a Shell Petrol Station in Port Louis?
User asked 2 months ago

I recently visited a Shell Petrol Station in Port Louis. The displayed price was around 1600mru, but when I paid with my MasterCard, the price changed to 2300mru. At the same time, the price on the display also changed. I asked the petrol attendant why this happened, and he simply said I had to pay the higher price. Is this some kind of scam targeting tourists or an additional charge for credit card payments?

You always need to stand and watch the meter to be sure.
Most garages don’t accept cards, only some do.
Some have a percentage fee, they charge on top and some don’t charge.

He basically scammed you. Credit card charges isn’t that high. You should file a report

I know some station charge like 3% if you using your card but that much is just unacceptable.
