I have been in Las Vegas for about a week. Last night, I withdrew some cash from an ATM in the casino located in the New York, New York resort. A few minutes later, someone also withdrew $3,000 from my account, using the same machine.
As soon as I noticed the theft (this morning), I called my bank and disputed the charge. It won’t cost me anything, but my card has been cancelled and they are sending me a new one. I will get it in 7-10 days. I contacted casino security, and they are investigating. It is their problem now, because my bank isn’t going to honor the withdrawal, so the owner of the ATM- the New York, New York casino – is going to be left holding the bag,
This is why I always carry spare credit cards. This is also why I don’t use debit cards. If it had been a debit card, the damage could have been much worse.
