Despite meetings last week with embassy personnel, bank officials, and ex-pats who have been hit by the ATM frauds, nothing has been done to correct/stop the problem. If you are coming down soon, be very careful using the ATM's and check your bank statements often! Semana Santa is upon us bringing the usual pickpockets in crowds; it adds insult to injury to have the bloody banks doing even worse to unsuspecting tourists as well as to the locals and permanent ex-pat residents.
