      I believe the surcharge was introduced to minimize the effect of fake credit cards. But my mastercard is a DEBIT card. the money is MINE, it comes out of my bank account immediately, no risk involved. When I was told there would be a 2% surcharge for using credit (at my butcher) I through my product on the ground and walked out. Was I wrong? This is a money grabbing surcharge.
