Subject: Bank - ATM - Questions
Hi , Frances They run the card as they would for any other transaction / purchase. So as long as it goes through and gets approved they have never asked us for a thing other than passport. It is same network as the hotels and restaurants use . They do not know about my balance or lack thereof. As long as the purchase is approved. The purchase in this case would be buying money from the bank.They have no idea what type of account it is tied to. The reason we use debit card is to avoid cash advance limits or charges (i.e credit @18% from day one on most cards for cash). Plus now we can go online and monitor the charges as they appear on our account, usually within 2 or 3 days they will post. As well as transfer money in if extra is needed. I hope this clears it up a little, if not write me. H.T. David
