Medan Airport - dodgy atm !

near international arrivals are a group of atms .. a few weeks ago I used the BI (Bank Indonesia) atm for multiple withdraws, later that same day our bank blocked my card following an unauthorised transaction attempt via Bank Negara.

My card is compromised and requires replacement .. .

Do you mean BRI? Or BNI?

There are a few reports of devices on ATMs in Indonesia.

BRI or BNI .. not sure, too easy to confuse them and neither the atm receipt or my bank statement identifies the atm bank owner by name .. and hardly matters, if an external skimmer device was used it would have been moved on to another atm within the same day.

The atm receipt is headed “Link” with the number S1AUSUA023 and KK. KUALANAMU

The takeaway message .. if an atm inside an international airport can be fitted with an external device then perhaps better to use an obscure atm in a less likely neighbourhood .. and travel with a bunch of cards.
