TweetThis! CAUTION from the US Embassy (Tanzania) re: ATM Fraud

U.S. Embassy
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Warden Message - ATM Fraud
June 24, 2009

Several American citizens have reported to the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam that money has been taken from their bank accounts by an unidentified person in Nairobi, Kenya. All of the complainants stated they used ATMs in Dar es Salaam. The Embassy is unsure of the method the perpetrators are using and must assume that all ATMs in Tanzania are potentially compromised.

The Embassy strongly recommends that American citizens check their accounts and determine if any unusual withdrawals have occurred. If so, the Embassy suggests American citizens contact their bank immediately.
The bank is in the best position to take measures to prevent further losses. The Embassy is working closely with the Tanzanian police on this matter.

Updated information on travel and security in Tanzania may be obtained from the Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada, or for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. For further information please consult the Country Specific Information for Tanzania, the East Africa Travel Alert, and the Worldwide Caution Travel Alert, which are available on the Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet website at http://travel.state.gov
