another day abroad!

Yesterday Tom tried to make a withdrawal from an ATM… it didn’t work. He tried another one… that one didn’t work either. He came home and called the bank in America to find out what the problem was. It turns out that someone in Texas had made a copy of his card and tried to use it at a Walmart. After 65 minutes on the phone he got the problem rectified and a new card is on the way. There are times when we are annoyed with our bank but yesterday was not one of those days… we are grateful that they noticed activity and immediately put a block on the account.

  1. I suppose it's kind of easy for your bank to find fraud since you are in Russia and card use in America would be out of the ordinary! Glad they are on top of things for you!
