    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    A new case of credit card fraud is reported by one of our compatriots.

    The incident took place at the FNB ATM of Eros shopping center in Windhoek last week.

    Accosted by a stranger after a withdrawal, it has been shown that the transaction was not completed and that it was return the card and repeat the code to stop it. Which allowed this stranger to copying the code and use then to make withdrawals. According to her, the guards were complicit.

    We invite you to the utmost caution when you withdraw cash: do not get distracted by strangers, prefer windows with a safety lock closed...

    Regards,

    Alix Guinot,

    Thanks Jerome

    Another reason to have some money ahead of time for the country you will be visiting.

    Ordered mine in December for my trip this year.

    A suggestion is to check the exchange rate and order when you think it is a good deal for you.
