WARNING, GUATEMALAN CREDIT CARD FRAUDSTERS!!!!

Today’s post does not have any direct link with the story of my great grandfather’s journeys in Central America, but rather concerns something far more modern. It has come to light that a copy of my Dutch credit card was made in Guatemala, and that numerous transactions have been made SINCE I left Guatemala on 15th January, using an exact copy of my credit card. LUCKILY, the bank noticed (how, I do not know) and blocked the card for me. I had heard stories of these copies being made automatically when the victim uses an ATM. The ATMs I used the most were in the Parque Central in Antigua, so, if anyone who might be intending to use those ATMs reads this…..BE WARNED!!!!
