Here is how the crooks do it in Kalkan. I think the same modus operandi is used in other resorts.KTLN ATM scam articleSaturday and Sunday are popular days to do this scam, as you have to wait until Monday morning before you can talk to someone inside the branch. Then you find out you have a bigger problem than you thought.I hope you get your money back quickly - you should be refunded as it is clearly a fraud.
This is a warning message for everyone. Yesterday morning I tried to take money from a bank machine near my house. The machine seemed to break and retained my card. Last night a large sum of money was stolen from my account. I am telling you this in the hope that if the same thing happens to you and a bank machine appears to retain your card telephone the bank immediately and protect your accounts. Please be careful.

Whether or not you cancel the card is obviously your choice. It also depends on whether you can be sure of the bank's policy about the return of cards "captured" by it's ATM.You'll find that in the UK, most banks send a captured card to the originating bank and you then have to collect it from your own branch.Some Turkish banks operate the same system whilst others will allow you to collect your card from the nearest branch of the ATM owner.So, when you're card's just been swallowed by an ATM it's the decision you've got to make is " have I got a good chance of getting the card back pretty quickly or is there a chance that someone's going to get hold of it and empty my account ? "If you fail to report the loss of your card to your bank "within a reasonable time" you'll be liable for any money withdrawn against the account."you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, p...?"
Is it good advice to cancel your card when it is in the ATM?If it really has been captured by the machine, it is not going to be used by criminals. It is safe - literally in the integral safe where the ATM's cash is stored. If you cancel it, how are you going to withdraw cash? It takes time to get a replacement. By cancelling your card, you may be making life difficult for yourself.
