Card Skimmers

SCB just called me to ask if I bought gold 48K in Yawala today at 4pm using my debit card.

I was in Bangna at that time and have never bought gold in Yawala or anywhere else.

So, it seems my ATM/ debit card has been skimmed.

Has anyone else had this happen to them? If so did you get your cash back?
SCB CS told me to get a police report and submit a couple of other docs and I should be in the clear with the money.

What reckons you?

Not skimmed but had my MasterCard stolen and emptied of $4,000. Made a police report and had everything sorted by MasterCard, who took up the issue with the vendors, leaving me in the clear.

So I'm off the see the police on the morrow get the transaction slip at the gold shops, maybe the CCTV will show the transaction taking place.

Hope I'm in the clear, that's at least three or four good sessions on the raz. It would be an awful shame to loose that amount of cash with TFIF coming up.

It probably wasnt SCB calling you .
I read about something similar recently , scammers phone you asking whether you have made a big purchase recently and then they say they will refund the money , al you have to do is give them the last three digits , the security number on your ATM card and they use this info to empty your account .
I hope that you didnt give them any info, if you did , put a stop on your account asap

^Thanks, but it was SCB head office.

They didn't ask for any info just had I used my card to buy gold in two shops and advised me to contact customer services which I did to cancel the card.

So did SCB put a "stop," on you're card?

Had everything stolen once in S.A.. spent the next three hours calling all my banks and credit card companies to put "stops," on all transactions. Only one charge got through. Idiots charged to McDonald's.

Sorry for your loss Malicious. Its a very "violating," sort of feeling. Hope it works out.

I had a call, supposedly from my bank in Hong Kong asking to update my personal info, I played along for a bit but when I asked why the bank was calling me about this and no email they quickly hung up. Calling the number back is always engaged.

Worst thing is I have never accessed the account in any way so them getting my number is a bit of a worry.

Piss poor effort really but I guess a lot of people fall for it.

Police have been working on the operation for over a week, in an undercover operation which has been assisted by local SCB banks who first brought the matter to their attention.

I had £300 taken from my UK bank account at an ATM in Bangkok. I was in Chiang Mai at the time, and had been there for months. My card was safely locked away in my safe. Fuck knows how they did it, but they did. My bank investigated and I got a full refund.

Don't use ATM cards, credit cards, debit cards.

Problem solved.
And you might even feel much better about yourself.
Or not.

Yep, card stopped, money refunded and card replaced free of charge. SCB rock.

A phone call from the bank alerted me to this. SCB then called the gold shop got a description of the thief, a woman over 30.

The police in Yawala were also very helpful, after giving me a police report at the station they took me down to the gold shop where we viewed the feed from the CCTV.

All's well that ends well.

Thailand is a corrupt place rife with crime..

It's not inconceivable that some employee at a shop copied your card when you bought something?
