New ATM warning from police

The Royal Barbados Police Force today sounded a new warning to members of the public to be extra vigilant when conducting transactions at Automatic Teller Machines (ATMs).

This following several reports of unauthorized withdrawals via the ATM network.

In a press release, the Force urged users to be on the look out for strange devices on or around the ATM and to also thoroughly inspect the ATM for any devices before inserting their cards.

Police  further advised users to cover the keypad when entering their pins.

“Be aware of suspicious persons in the area of the ATM,” the release added.

    This an issue that should be addressed by the bankers association, they are responsible for providing a safe and secure environment for customers to transact business. RBPF don’t force the onus on the customer, yes we respect that you want to put us on gaurd but you also need to get a statement from the bankers.

    As an engineer, nothing as new technology is safe, and as time passess would never be, in most areas of life new technology is failing and becoming more desastrous.
    The answer, to bank customers, dont use you will lose, because the banks are not going to just give you your money back.
    People must start thinking for themselves, how often would you use a system, where you lose you hard earn.
    I have an idea , thats very simple and fool proof.
