Re: Credit card fraud [UBS]

Don't use your card in restaurants in the U.S. either.
The class of fraud which involves skimming a card and making a clone of it, has been more or less eliminated in Europe, with the introduction of cards with an embedded chip.
America, however has not yet (fully) implemented this technology, still relying on the (copyable) magnetic strip, so cloned card frauds are common there.
