On 19 Apr 2013 my husband and his airline crew had drinks at El Faro around 1815. He gave the server his credit card who returned the card within a minute saying he needed to pay the gal at the register. My husband paid 360 pesos with MasterCard. Saturday, the following morning I received a call from the MasterCard fraud department. I was informed that two attempts (with an actual card) for a charge of $918 at Costco Wholesale had been denied along with an attempt at Gas Villa, also denied. These attempted charges occurred around noon CST, 20 Apr. I deactivated card, My husband only used this credit card twice during the 24 layover, at El Faro the evening before and the next day at crew hotel on day of departure. He did alert the crew hotel of the incident hoping they would follow up with the El Faro management. I have provided dates and time of this incident also hoping that El Faro reads Trip Advisor and will take the initiative to investigate. This is a beautiful setting, especially at sunset to overlook the surrounding area but use CASH only.
