Costly credit card fraud

Evie’s credit card was stolen while on holidays. Pickpockets in Germany can be extremely skilled; you often won’t notice that your belongings are missing until it’s too late. Evie was travelling through Germany alone. She had been exploring Hamburg for the day. When she went to buy lunch, she couldn’t find her wallet. Evie hadn’t realised it was missing and didn’t know how long it had been gone. The thief got away with €100 cash, her travel card and over AUD$1,000 was missing from her account. Evie called her bank to cancel the credit card and reported the crime to the police. Evie then contacted her travel insurer and was reimbursed for her loss.
