I just learned today that guys that came back from Cumbuco last week got skimmed.
Earlier on this forum i read that the problem was taken care of??

What's the latest?
Anybody else who has had a problem with it lately?

I hope not, I have been there too some times...

But so far I didn't hear anything new...I heard the staff got trained and that should help to stop the scamming. And/or they have a cam there now to be able to see who went there...

What I did like 15 years ago:
I had two (2) accounts.
When I travel I use one card to take out cash, but only have as much cash on the account as how much I want to take out.
The next time I want to use it I first have to transfer money from one to the other.

No idea if this would keep me safe from "skimmers" these days, but worked for me then.
