Atm Fees— so shady. Disgusting.
Unbelievable. Can they be even more corrupt?
I’ve withdrawn money from an ATM in a resort in Mexico before. No problems. Nothing in recent years though till this past trip.
I recently did it and basically paid a 10% fee. I was charged a “government tax fee percentage”. This is in addition to the 7.95$ fee to use the ATM (which is posted when you withdrawing). I showed it to the general manager. He acted shocked. Whatever. So people either don’t care they are paying 10% to take out money or don’t pay attention.
Lesson learned. I will always make sure I take 3 times as much as I think I will spend.
