Beware: Changing profile will default to forex ripoff!

Logged on today to change the credit card on my Fastbreak profile. At the bottom of the page was a box that was pre-checked for the forex ripoff. By clicking this box you choose to be billed in the home currency where your card was issued. This includes a 3% forex fee (plus many issuers still charge you a fee for a charge that originated overseas).

Be sure to unclick the box before you save your profile!

Oh boy, DCC and a 3% Forex fee? I'll be sure to double-check that box now.

Thanks!
