New unusual charges will operate in the Czech Republic in 2016: pay porn sites and internet gambling will be at the center of this new banking commissions.

Česka Spořitelna has revealed that for carrying out payments in some sites at risk, an additional commission of 20czk will be charged.

A “black list” of sites has been pointed out, and it comprehends sites with porn, lottery or gambling.

Expert Patrick Najera from portal bankovnipoplatky.com said: “Unfortunately this is a step in the wrong direction, since the banks do not exist to educate and punish clients regarding which sites do they visit, and this could be a problem in the future”. He also added that there’s no guarantee it will end with porn and gambling, but that it could also comprehend cigarettes and alcohol, and if the clients want to spend their money on those websites, they have the total responsibility of getting eventually scammed on their shoulders.

However, he recalls that the situation with bank charges has improved in the last years: some absurd commissions have been canceled and haven’t been replaced by others.
