I'm not quite sure why they would check my credit with a £35 order - never gave them access to do this - suspicious at best.
I am not quite sure why the drink shop felt the need to check my credit (4) times for a £35 order after I provided proof of my age. I have reported this to credit expert as I find this very suspicious.
