We just returned from a 5-week stay in Puerto Vallarta last Thursday, July 11. We mainly used cash, but occasionally used one credit card in a handful of restaurants. We notified the credit card company of the dates we would be in PV. We received a phone call today from our credit card company, asking us about $5550 in charges made to our card since July 12, from PV to Cancun, to the US border. Most of the companies' names sound fraudulent. All charges are being reversed by the cc co., but I'm wondering if there is a list anywhere on TA in older postings naming restaurants where cc were used, to see if there is any pattern. Yes, we are aware of the risks, and mostly use cash, but took a chance with one cc, because we knew we could monitor it.
