My husband and I were in Italy for three weeks in September. When we travel I use atm cards for cash withdrawals. I have two checking accounts at different banks for this sole purpose. The accounts have only the money I wish to spend on vacation. When we return any monies not used get transferred back to our other accounts. I continue to check the accounts for fraudulent activity for about three weeks after I return even though there is only $ 50 in them.
Today I checked one of the accounts to find there was a $40 cash withdrawal from an ATM in Florida on November 30th. Two days later there was a balance inquiry and 10 days after that ( yesterday ) there was another balance inquiry. I called the bank to report the fraud and have them cancel the card. I could not believe two months after we returned from Italy all this happened. I did not lose my cards as we have them. Someone made a copy of my card. I try to be careful about where I use it. We used this card 4 times. once in Naples twice in Sorrento and once in Noci. Twice I used it at an ATM machine inside a bank, once at a bank ATM not in a bank and the other time I can't remember. Just thought I would share and let everyone know. Be careful and keep checking your accounts.
