    hi .on 7/4/2014

    We went shopping in Hoi An and its a great place. But we bought some clothes from the 24 hr clothes shop at 5c Pham Hong Thai Street Hoi An. this guy and staff were good ,BUT when we returned home a few days later we found on our credit card statement was over charged buy $1,800 dollars austrailian as well as the $180 dollars that was the right amount .

    We have tried to call the phone numbers above from austrailia. but as yet no help. and emails unanswered. The credit card co is looking into how we were charged 2 times....

    And just now on the 22/4/2014 I talked to him and he claims he is in hospital and cannot look in to it for 2 or 3 weeks, so that's not solving anything ,

    Is he really in hospital

    hi this is Geoff n.

    it is now the 23/6/2014 and he has phoned me 3 weeks ago now, telling me he will fix the problem ,but sorry to say as yet nothing has been done .No money has been repaid to our credit card. he Took $1800 fraudulently from or credit card he is a thief .As we speak my credit card company are checking this out.

    Please don't give this 24 hour clothes shop your credit card. and check your account when you get home..
