The giant Lee Der toy company that used to employ 5000 workers remains closed after Matels recall of some 18 million toys, likely to cost the company in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Using Your Credit and Debit Cards Abroad Could Cost You a Small Fortune… / ConsumerWatch / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Lisa Taylor, analyst at Moneyfacts.co.uk – the money search engine, comments: “With travellers cheques becoming less popular more of us are opting for the convenience of using our plastic when we jet off on our holidays.

“We take it for granted that using our debit cards is free of charge whilst on home soil, so it’s not surprising that some consumers are shocked when they see how the charges stack up after using their card on holiday. With terms such as retail conversion charge, and foreign usage charge, it can be confusing for travellers to know exactly what types of fees they will be liable for, and how much it’s likely to add to the cost of their trip.

By: Shahla_Walayat

After excessive hikes in gas & electric bills by energy suppliers during the past 2 years, many energy suppliers had failed to pass on the lower costs due to specifically the fall in the market price for gas, which has gone from a high of $16 to below $6.
