EVERYONE traveling in Africa please be careful of ATM fraud. My husband and I just returned a few days ago to discover that someone withdrew over $3,000 from our account and various atms! We were driving through Haxyview on our way to Protea Kruger Gate hotel and stopped to get gas at a large gas station right next door to a large supermarket. When we had to pay for gas in cash my husband went to the atm at the grocery store next door.
There was a nice, well dressed looking man who told my husband the outside atm was broken that he would have to use theinside one. Well my husband thought nothing of this and proceeded to use the inside one and the same man tried to assist him which my husband then told him to leave him alone. Well somehow the man must have seen our pin and somehow has the atm programmed to remember cards because all of the fraud started on this day! I highly recommend using a credit card while traveling and exchanging cash....do not deal with atms if you do not have to!! Luckyly we are protected by our card and will be getting the $ back but it is sad to think that this man is probably stealing $ from tourists everyday!! If anyone says anything to you or tries to assist you in anyway....please do not use that atm at all!!
