ATM scams 2020 08 31

đź“ŚAdvisory regarding ATM scams:

After several ATM scammings at Sediba Plaza atms we entered into discussions with the management there.
Several individuals have also posted complaints on fb.

I recommended to them that security guards should be posted on a continuous basis at the ATMs.

Sediba management did indeed post guards there only to discover that some community members were chasing guards away. The guards have been purposely posted there to safeguard the public whilst drawing cash.

Some information has been obtained about scammers targetting these ATMs and has been handed over to Police for further investigation.

The golden rule at any ATM is not to accept help from anyone. If your card cannot enter the slot, go to another one. These slots are sometimes deliberately jammed by scammers.

If there is a suspect group loitering around an ATM, rather use one at another location.

In general there very few incidences at Sediba currently.

The CPF together with Police and Sediba management are currently closely monitoring the situation.
