Can an ATM in California accept payments for an Ecuadorian credit card?

My wife is Ecuadorian, and we are relocating to California permanently. She has two credit cards issued by a major Ecuadorian bank, and we need to figure out how to make payments on them from the United States, as there are some charges that will post after we have left the country. The bank assures us that we can do so from Cirrus-network ATMs in the United States. I am skeptical, as I have never seen anything like this in Los Angeles.
- Ecuador uses U.S. dollars as their national currency.
- I can withdraw money just fine, with my U.S.-bank-issued debit card, from the Ecuadorian bank's ATMs.
- Financial transfers in and out of Ecuador are taxed.
