I agree with the previous comment. I live in Cozumel for 4 months like many others I use the ATM machines. I am hoping the ATM's at the Banks are safer, that is what I normally use. Having said that I only have a cheap Mexican phone while there. I do hope if residents who have phones with blue tooth scan the ATM's and Post the scammed ATM's on this site that would be great.

Does anybody think the issue is the combined VISA/Debit cards that are prevalent in the US? In Canada, I have a debit card that only has access to my selected bank accounts and a separate VISA. These combined cards would seem to be more of a risk. Both my debit and VISA cards have chips and PINs, but I know that any level of security will eventually be hacked. I guess, in the meantime, I'll be bringing cash when I come in November, and if the need arises, I'll be going to a Scotiabank branch to get a cash advance on my Scotiabank VISA. Let's hope that when he publishes the next installment, that the situation on Cozumel is not as bad.

I don't think the funding source for a card has anything to do with how hackable it is. I do think that there's a bigger problem when every bit of someone's bank account can be siphoned off as opposed to some limit set by either a credit card issuer or the customer.
