After a wonderful month in Puerto Morelos I have just called my credit card company to challenge a bogus charge by the Seven-Eleven (next to the Pemex gas station @ highway). I also urged them to examine if this is happening to other customers as regular scam operation. Indeed I purchased $49.30 worth of stuff, but right after that came an extra bogus charge for $7.78 – Beware!
For context, I don’t use my credit card much while traveling in Mexico but did use it once at John Grays Kitchen and repeatedly at Martin’s grocery store with zero problems. Anyone else had similar problems? Sharing this type of information will help clean up the system and to alert other travelers.
