Figures released today show that criminal gangs are using Cash Machines all over the UK.
Innocent members of the public are being tricked into giving over their hard earned money to these criminals, and then these same criminals are using cash machines to pay out increasingly reduced amounts. In some cases the crooks have even tricked the Government into providing the money that they then pay out through the machines.
Using a cash machine avoids the crooks from having to deal face-to-face with millions of their customers. They are able to pay themselves huge unwarranted bonuses, trash peoples' pensions and investments and risk bankrupting their customers without having to explain themselves in person.
The fraudsters' modus operandi varies, but in most cases they target the normal man in the street. They entice him with stories of high interest and prudent investment, then once they have his money they recklessly fritter it away. However, they make sure they continue to charge fees and draw commission so that their shareholders do not complain.
It is thought that without the government taking even more money away from the man in the street and giving it to the criminals, the bank machines would stop paying out altogether.
Luckily, the Financial Services Authority is on the case, and can only be a matter of time before these bank machine bandits are locked up once and for all.
