My wife is currently in Rome traveling with friends. On past trips we have always relied on our bank card to pick-up cash after we arrive and we thought were well aware of potential security and theft problems and precautions. Sunday afternoon she used her card to withdraw Euros, after the transaction the card would not return from the machine, she verified that the transaction was completed and looked for tape or a piece of plastic around the card slot as we had been warned to do ��� she found nothing. The machine then shut down and rebooted itself. She later observed customers using the same machine to withdraw cash. From home I checked the account status and canceled the card. Immediately following her transaction, several more transactions were registered and the remaining money in the account had already been removed. Obviously her card had been removed and someone had gotten her pin#. I immediately filed a fraud claim with our bank and she will have to sign an avadavat on her return, it was also suggested that a police report would not be a bad idea. My questions: has anyone else experienced a theft like this and how was the liability resolved? Since it was not a Visa transaction but rather a money card transaction it is possible we will be help entirely liable ��� I would just like to get a feel for how this was resolved for others. Any suggestions about the procedure for filing the police report? Finally, any suggestion on how to avoid this in the future? As I said we have both been to Rome in the past without problems and understand and observe the security issues around using the bank card. She is currently unaware of the theft and I���m going to avoid telling her until I have to since I know she will be crushed. Thanks for the help.
