CCUSA
Review of CCUSA (Camp Counselors USA) by hausofbarber

Disadvantages: None at all!

I am a first time applicant for CCUSA; and I'm not going to America until June 2014. But I have had a lot of questions for them since the start of my application and they have been none stop helpful since the start. My recent concern was today when I wen ... Read review

I non stopped emailed Dave and Nikki asking about the payments and they did inform of the exchange charges and that I should ring my bank. I rang my bank and they informed me that there would be a 2.75% charge changing from GBP into USD. That would make my total payment around $500+. I told CCUSA that I wasn't very happy with this and they then said that they pay the charge but you must tell them before hand so they can add it to your invoice on footprints. So they added the £10.32 balance so I would only need to pay the total fee of £379. I don't see why you would think that I would make this up as they actually DID do this for me. by hausofbarber
CCUSA did not give me this at all and charged me for it, if CCUSA actually did this for you then you should make it more clear how they did it for you as you do not give a lot of detail. by stuarty315
