LETTER: Beware ATM crime

2016-03-29 06:00

Thank you for alerting the public about the ATM gangs in the city centre area (“ATM gangs ‘well dressed’ ”, People’s Post, 22 March). I have observed some suspicious people loitering and offering help in Strand Street. Inside the Pick n Pay supermarket are (both Absa and Standard Bank) ATMs. I have alerted the security who are usually reluctant to help. Sometimes I call police, but I am not sure if they take it seriously.

The last time was two weeks ago when I saw one security officer confronting two other security officers who work inside the Pick n Pay area. He was shouting at them that they were part of the crime as they did not take any action.

Anyway, people must be alert!
