Everybody was saying vending machine so I was worried because I haven't used a vending machine lately! But somebody said car wash then I remembered I spent 12.50 at a self serve car wash/dog wash.

Gym vending machine. I don't usually use it, but they have a new protein shake I hadn't heard of and decided to try it on that particular day. The once-off payment threw me for a second, especially considering I've been a victim in the past of the "minimal pay probe, then lump sum withdraw" overseas, but this turned out to be legit.

Circumtec supplies hardware and its software to vending, car wash and dog wash operators. It's a payment processor for them so customers can pay by card. Your bank statement will not display the name of the owner of the machine/service you used ... only the name of the payment gateway used. That's why you see Circumtec on your statement.

Ray on July 29, 2018

Looks like a fraudulent transaction as I have not used any of the devices that would use Circumtec

Ah thanks to the comments here. Worked out its a cigarette vending machine in Fitzroy Vic

Charded for Massage Chair at Epping Plaza, was wondering why this was showing up as Mentone !!

Duped on August 15, 2019

Car wash, Mackay. The thing is, such businesses claim to be local (merely by their local presence). The same thing happens with Yarra Trail, Woolovers etc. We pay then find out after the event that we've been hit with international fees (without our consent). WE'VE BEEN DUPED. WE ARE BEING DUPED. Businesses in Australia need to make it very clear that their payment system is set up in another country and consumers will automatically be hit with an international transaction fee. We budget for our spending. They trick us. It is trickery. 'False and misleading advertising'by omission. Class action sounds like the right way to go. Why is the Australian Government doing anything? They tore shreds iff our banks but are allowing Corporstions and big businesses to 'launder' money through seemingly legitimate ways, accessing our money without our knowledge or consent. It's form of rape. Certainly not good.

Duped on August 15, 2019

Change.Org Change.Org does the same. They solicit 'donations' in the name of helping others but the money doesnt go to others. It goes to On top of which, after a person donates, they are hit with an international fee same as this car wash business. We find out later. It's a rort. Why is the Australian Government allowing it? I regret voting Scomo in. Won't happen again. His Christianity like Falou's is a sham. It's business. No good going to Labour either. They're in bed with Change.Org and others who are milking us and laundering via such fees that 'appear to be' legal but are not. Absolute trickery. Duped again. Do we look that stupid?
