Norfolk people have been warned to be on their guard when using bank cards after two reports of cloning.
The crimes have happened in the past fortnight, and in both cases sums were taken from bank accounts and cashed in Malaysia.
Lucy Webster, from Trowse, near Norwich, said her bank had alerted her after £280 was taken in four transactions from a joint account in the morning.
A second victim reported that £30 had been withdrawn on December 28 after stop-ping at a city filling station.
Mrs Webster, 31, said she had not disclosed her PIN and praised bank staff for alerting her as soon as the cash was taken.

“It's very worrying, and I wanted to warn people to be aware that it's happening because you never think it will happen to you,” she added.
Norfolk police reminded people to take a few basic precautions against card and identity fraud, including:
Report any suspect devices you find attached to ATMs, or suspicious activity at or around cash machines.
Shield your hand when entering your PIN.
Store private documents in a secure place. Never leave bills and statements lying around, and shred correspondence with personal details.
