Credit Card fraud alert

Jump to last reply

Here we are in sunny, lovely Rome. A trip report will be posted when we return (unless I get extremely ambitious and post while traveling). This is a reminder that you must be careful with your credit cards. We returned to a place we had enjoyed last year, Antica Trattoria "da Carlone, della luce 5, for dinner last night. We noted they took charge cards so we decided to charge. Luckily we are traveling with a computer and had added "foreign transaction" alerts to our card because this morning we got notice of 3 charges, 2 which were not ours. Naturally the card had to be canceled, a total drag. We of course have contingency plans for this but it is a pain and a disappointment. He did walk off with our card so it is hard to know if it was in house or if it was someone with a "reader" somewhere. Goodness knows this was a hopping little joint. Since I left my light jacket lying on the back of my chair we had planned to return there this afternoon to retrieve it. We will be mentioning this to the owner if we see him. Point is we are glad we had signed up for the alerts. We are at the beginning of the trip so if this was a big scam and more charges would have been forthcoming this would have been a mess to straighten out once home. This has not dampened the trip a bit though, I mean come on, we are in Rome and it is Awesome :)!
