    Bank of Santa Cruz.

    Hi Cavok. Yes I did! Perhaps I should have been clearer, but fraudulent charges didn't appear after I had been home a week! I will always bring cards for emergencies, but will just use cash for spending money now on. I don't know how to identify a card reader installed on a ATM, scanning the...
