If an ATM took my card, let me enter my PIN number and the amount I wanted, but then spit my card back out with no money, no explanation, nothing...what does that mean? Did it not have enough money? Did it just rip me off? Ugh I am too afraid to put my card back into any ATM now.

Thank you for your reply. My card worked just fine at the Athens airport on the 25th. Today was first day since that I tried to use it, and this is what happened. Oh course banks are closed here, and not yet open back home, so I am just waiting to call my bank. Thank you again =)

Either log into your bank account and check or call your banks customer service and check.

This just happened to us in Romania this week. After talking to the bank we found out that VISA has the entire country blocked - no transaction s via ATM or Credit cards

I've seen that happen when the ATM needs service (or is currently being serviced). It may not have anything to do with your card.

Thank you for all your reply's. Oops my fault...turns out the amount of Euros I was trying to take out was over my dollar amount ;)
