getJSON methods converts to data into string values



User has a requirement to retain the Property values in their own data types. However, getJSON converts all the values into string values. 
For example:
{"ServiceFee": {
"Amount": "200.25",
"CurrencyCode": "USD"

In above response generated by getJSON, Amount is a property of decimal. But it was returning as String.

Convert a Clipboard Page that contains Decimal OR Date Properties. It would be converted into String values.

CurrencyCode: string
