Didn´t know the word for this kind of manipulation before but and I just lost money through skimming. Evil or Very Mad

It´s unbelievable how fast the scammer work. They usally need to do the transaction from overseas because it will not work in my country.

You are right. Also its not possible to protect everything because there is a large criminal industry operating worldwide.
If you use your card online, and the most need this, you can´t be sure everything goes well.
