    The oldest of old tricks this ....

    We had a guy fired in Sos/Cab over this... the owner chimed in -- years ago

    They resell the gas and pocket the $$$ -
    overcharge you ... collect from the next guy

    JUST WATCH THE PUMP AND THE BILL ...very simple

    I would complain and keep the evidence and go all the way to the parent corporation even if that took some time to track down.
    In this county it'll also get you killed, beat up, harassed, etc and etc

    If that is worth 1K, by all means go and face the dude mano a mano, after all; its all about what your time and quality of life is worth to you.

    Mine is worth more than 1K DOM Pesos indeed.

    How could you possibly over pay when you are out of your car looking at the amount?
    You have no argument against the CC payment.

    Its logic, and common sense. Paying w/cash = the risk of money down the drain, paying w/CC = money back to your pocket, in the event of scam as this one.

    you are wasting time...

    some guys do not understand the dynamics of poverty in the developing world. it is an abstraction to them. so, when you tell them that if you get a guy fired from his job he might come looking for you, they wont get it.

    Agreed ML....

    same with the so-called Hookers....

    I call them survivors.... they know how to navigate life
    Sex is their commodity.... nothing else to sell / contribute...

    Catch as catch can --- as we say

    They'll get it all right eventually, perhaps too late, perhaps too harsh of a way to learn it.

    For 1K DOM Pesos, which is roughly $20.00 USD, no sir - I spend more than that in supplements and vitamins.

    I ain't fighting anyone, I ain't argue with nobody, I'll file a dispute with my CC, get my money refunded and buy gas at the next station WITH A CC, NOT CASH.

    I won't - I pay with CCs and money is right back in my pockets with a simple phone call.

    I don't have to challenge Pedro, the gas station attendant to a duel to prove anything.

    I've used CCs in this island for years, have filed two claims and none is due to cloning or miss use and I use them heavily.

    The fear of use (of CCs) comes from misunderstanding, lack of information and lastly - some individuals feel more "secured" using cash - see the oxymoron?

    Chose the best option.
    BS sir, pay attention to the gas station meter, your meter in the car, check if there's no bucket under the fill opening and never get distracted! Works for me the last 18years...

    I can't force common sense, do as you please and continue to pay with cash.

    Do tell us about it when:

    - You get ripped off

    - You face the attendant and prove your testosterone levels to get you money back


    I'll love to hear the end of it. But I do wish you well!
