    Yes, it works...but keep checking them; sometimes they(=Banco leon) try to "borrow" something from it. They come up with exchange-costs etc.
    Stay sharp! (but that is with everything in the DR)

    The exchange cost is nit that bad. Actually the exchange rate comes at the most 10 points more than the buy rate at exchange house.

    E.g. if sell rate for dollars is 37.30 then Leon has rate of 37.35 or 37.40 on PP Visa.

    Banco Leon did it again!!!!

    Sometimes, after a deposit on my Debet Card (Tarjeta Prepagado) they make an "Ajuste". Yesterday I deposited RD$ 1,500 (there was still about RD$ 150) and today I saw this:

    12/02/2010 Debito Ajuste Voucher 035 - John F. Kennedy -1,576.19 222001

    They just take it from the card!
    This has happened now 3 times before and always after my email that there is something wrong, they "return" the money without any explanation or excuse. I wonder what will happen if I don't react on this.....

    There is something tricky going on.....

    Be aware!
