A recent outbreak of ATM scams in Puerto Vallarta involving cloned cash machines designed to steal confidential banking information has been the latest method to fraud visitors to the popular resort town. Many times a day tourists use one of the ATMs installed into the street-side of local businesses designed to capture encrypted banking information. Each time this happens, the user puts their funds at risk to the fraudsters at the helm of this operation. To avoid being scammed by this theft, Grand Miramar suggests you make sure that the ATM used is in a bank. This will reduce the instances of being defrauded greatly as the bank ATMs are monitored by closed circuit TV cameras linked to a security station. When visiting Puerto Vallarta and to avoid being scammed, Grand Miramar recommends only using bank's ATM machines.
