Spaniard Victim of Card Scam
A Spanish man has complained to Kuta Police that his credit card was skimmed and used for unauthorised purchases while he was staying in Bali in April.
Ruiz De La Fuente Jimenez, 32, from Valencia, who stayed at Balangan Beach in Bali’s south, told police he had noticed a transaction on his credit card account made on April 28 at Cyber Café in Kuta.
When he checked his full card records he found three other unauthorised transactions totalling Rp2.5 million (US$272). He told police that while the amount was small, it nevertheless made him angry.
Police said this week the identity of the card skimmer was unknown but they were investigating.
