Atm Theft at Banco BHD

Just got back from Cabarete on March 4th. I checked my bank statements and found there was theft on my debit card. I only used it at the ATM at Banco BHD. So please be careful.

Sorry to hear that, and thanks for the warning. It's getting pretty bad in the area with ATMs. Last month or so, someone I know got his stolen at the Scotia bank.

I haven't done it yet but I hear you can walk into the bank and ask the teller to do a withdrawal for your using your ATM card. Not sure how it works but worth a try.

I never had mine stolen here, and I use Bankreservas which is outdoors and totally unprotected, but guess what, got it stolen in a 7-11 store in the US. I guess it can happen anywhere, but be extra careful here, and cover the keyboard with your hand when typing your pin.

Thanks Silvia,

I agree it can happen anywhere. I think the bank will return my money so should be ok. You just never know.

Other than that I had a great time in Cabarete!
