Mollydog in the snow.

6 months for payment? Good grief!

I just got a payment through on my credit card that was converted for Islandic Krona. The amount I paid was £4.33. Looking at the payee, it's a business in Sandigerdi, which is a small Icelandic town we visited for a few hours in September.

Given that it's been about 6 months since I was there, I thought I'd better check with the card fraud people about this - but after some debate, they decided it was a real payment that had somehow 'got stuck'.

On the plus side, I'm pretty sure the only thing I bought in Sandigerdi was a decent sized meal for 2 people (in an Icelandic Wooden Cafe), so I feel I've done well getting it for £4.33 with 6 months free credit!
