I stayed at the Marina Fiesta hotel on the all inclusive plan from July 6-9. During check in, Marina Fiesta ran my credit card and charged “incidentals” which would be rescinded if I did not charge anything to the hotel. Upon checking out, my incidentals were 19.19. I used a different credit card to pay that amount. I did not take the original card out of my wallet after that. No charges were made on the original card I gave to Marina Fiesta while in Mexico. A friend was traveling with me, we checked in to the hotel at the same time, both of our cards were run at the same time. (Different cards, different names, different addresses, by two different employees at the front desk.)
Yesterday, at 2:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight time, both of our cards were used fraudulently, for the same amount (Approx. 160.00 USD). My credit card company called to alert me of this charge. I have the card in my possession. The only possible person who could have had those numbers, in Cabo, along with my friends numbers in Cabo, is someone at The Marina Fiesta Hotel.
I would be happy to send Trip Advisor staff the alerts from our credit card company to verify that this is not a made up story.
Please be wary of using any card in Cabo, especially a debit card. I was there a few years back, at Costco, a cashier there swiped my debit card twice and fraudulently charged over 600.00. It is much more difficult to get debit card charges rescinded.
If you do stay at this hotel; I would strongly suggest you monitor any credit card charges during and after your stay.
