Be alert at ATMs

2017-10-25 06:01

A WARNING to those drawing cash at an ATM to be careful of anyone attempting to point out there could be a problem with their card.

Last Saturday afternoon a young lady was withdrawing from an ATM in Pine Street – no one was around.

A man suddenly appeared and said “your card is not going to work, you need to punch in the bank code”.

Fortunately, another man approached and said to her “do not lis-ten to him he is trying to scam your card”.

On hearing this the first man disappeared fast.

There was no problem withdrawing the cash – so please be careful and vigilant when withdrawing cash at any time.
