So he/she didn't succeed? The banks seem to have a list of countries where credit and debit cards are blocked. I was in the Philippines in January and luckily I told the bank in advance. Otherwise my credit card would have been unusable over there.Speaking of Bangalore, I got a call from my bank during the week asking me did I try to withdraw 200 euros from an ATM there. I hadn't; some Indian IT genius had gotten hold of my card number by skimming it here in Ireland and had attempted to withdraw money there.
