I recently posted on this restaurant that said they accepted Visa on their door, but when it came time to pay the bill, they informed me that their credit card machine was not working and that they could only take cash. I labeled my post as a "credit scam" and another poster said that this was "libelous" and that this sort of that this sort of thing happens often in Montreal.
I'm sure that the bank machines used to process cards are not the same as the US, but having worked in many establishments that accept credit cards, ususally, when a POS machine, computer, credit device, whatever, goes on the blink, there's a way to process cards by taking an imprint, it's called the "old fashioned way."
My question is; has anyone else ever had a problem with this particular establishment with regards to not accepting credit card payment??
