I have placed an online order a few days ago but before that I had to double check all expenses to make sure the transaction will go without problems. What I bought costs $998 USD including shipping fees, which should be around 290KD. To be exact, today 2nd of May 2007, $997.93 USD equals 288.563KD [*].
Now I checked my visa statement to see 295KD deducted from my visa account [*]. I'm not good in mathematics but apparently NBK charged more money. That's +5KD over today's currency rates.
Transaction fees? I don't think so.
Seems like our good ol' camel is sucking on a leak.
