Credit Card Fraud

The U.S. Embassy is aware of several instances of credit card fraud in The Bahamas. U.S. citizens have reported that they have received fraudulent credit card charges on their credit cards and that their respective credit card companies notified them of attempted fraud related charges on their accounts after using their card at various businesses in Nassau. The Embassy urges all U.S. citizens to check their credit and debit card accounts for any unusual activity. If you suspect fraudulent activity, contact your bank immediately to close the compromised credit card account and place a fraud investigation with your credit card company.
