Scam Alert – Always get your Receipt when Paying with Credit/Debit Card

Button

—Você quer a sua via?
—Não, obrigado! Menos lixo...

Your credit/debit card transaction may have just cost you a lot more than you thought —R$90, R$990, or more; a friend was scammed for nearly R$5000 in SP.

Here's how. The person brings the machine to your face showing the amount you owe, all you need to do is to enter your number and be quickly on your way. Sometimes the tiny screen may show a zero to the left, but you do not worry because, after all, a zero to the left adds nothing to the total. But what you don't know is that it is a common new scam that has taken in a few friends... especially targeting foreigners. Unscrupulous scammers, among them taxi drivers and others will add a 9; 99; or 990 ahead of the number and add spaces at the end so the screen only shows the amount you expect to pay (at least once I noticed a discrepancy, thinking nothing of it). You enter your PIN, politely thank the attendant, and drive/walk away none the wiser.

Without that little piece of paper, you would just throw away to look at, you have no idea you have just been taken. Such a nice attendant.

Solution: Always yes "Sim" when asked "Você quer a sua via?" This act in itself reduces the likelihood of an altered amount. Of course, always look to compare once the transaction is done.

If you want a day trip outside the city, Billy does really great tours to Cristalina, Pirenopolis, etc. I went on a Cristalina small group tour with him and it was really fun. My son is still talking about it two years later.

One of the best Açaís I've ever tried!

Super affordable, with generous portions. My favorite is the one mixed with cupuaçu sorbet 😍
The place is very charming and peaceful. They offer a range of delicious typical food and the owner is super friendly.

I recommend this product.

Highly recommended

Cristina has a natural ability to engage with children of all ages. With her previous profession employment as a teacher, and having two adult children of her own, she is well placed to take responsibility for any children in her care. Speaking fluent Portuguese and English, your children will be in safe hands and also receive the benefits of improving their language abilities.

I came here to write a post about Billy and I see there already is one! So I'll just add my experience. When I was brand-new to Brasilia I did a group tour of Brasilia. This is a really great tour - you'll learn not only the layout of the city and the history of why it's been done that way, but also get to see all the big monuments and best architecture. I would really recommend this tour if you have family or friends visiting. You'll learn so much about the city, and your guests will feel like they actually know the city.

I recommend this product.

Moving is often a stressful and daunting task, but AAA Moving & Relocations LLC made it a breeze!
The team was fantastic - they were professional, efficient, friendly and patient! They took great care in packing and securing all of my belongings, and even went above and beyond to collect a few items that I had forgotten.
Paulo Woolny, the owner of the company, was also incredibly helpful throughout the process. He provided transparent and accurate quotes upfront, so there were no surprises when it came to the cost of my move. He also kept me informed every step of the way, which really put my mind at ease. He is always willing to please you if he can and if something is under his control.
When my removal reached Italy, their Italian counterparts were just as efficient and careful. All my belongings arrived in time and in perfect condition, which was great.
Overall, I cannot recommend AAA Moving & Relocations LLC highly enough. They truly are experts in their field, and they made what could have been a very stressful experience into a pleasant and easy one. If you're looking for a moving company that cares about your belongings and your peace of mind, look no further than AAA Moving & Relocations LLC. You shall not be disappointed!
