Since I use my own bank account here on the island for withdrawals, (CMB), I haven't been paying attention to the ATM,s. Our friends have been attempting to get cash from several different ATM,s since last week and we're always receiving an error message. They were using their U.S. Bank card and requesting U.S. currency. Come to find out today the ATM,s are only dispensing Florins and not U.S. currency. Our friends tried again but this time requested Florins, and sure enough to, it worked. Our neighbors have since told us that some banks are only dispensing Florins at their ATM,s but they did not know the reason.
Anyone else having problems/issues with the ATM,s dispensing U.S currency? Could this be related to the recent issue with Venezuela and the run on U.S. Currency?
