Not personally but machines have been tampered with locally.The technology to stop this is long overdue.

My husband`s debit card was scammed at the local Asda cash machine a couple of years ago. The bank rang us about unusually high transactions. It had been used to buy airline tickets...........in Malaysia! Luckily, the bank reimbursed him.

I used the atm at the local tesco tuesday afternoon 16th dec. Come Thursday I had my banks fraud team on the phone asking me about a load of unusual debits from my account. I have been reimbursed now thank goodness. Went to tesco later that day and there was a warning on the screen sugesting users should alert the royal bank if they notice anything unusual about that machine. Must have been there then I think.

So it is just an assumption that it happened at the Campbeltown store? More likely it happened when you made an online purchase. All cash machines have a display to say if you notice some thing wrong with the machine to report it.

No, no online purchases by me for about a year and a half. I am presuming it was at the atm I mentioned.
