Trouble at Cashpoint

Jump to last reply

Just a reminder to everyone travelling to Paris to watch their backs whilst taking cash out from a street ATM. I nearly got done yesterday morning whilst at a cashpoint in the Rue de la Bretagne by two teenage boys. They interrupted me just after I'd entered my PIN and covered the ATM screen with a map. One of the little sods even pressed the 100 euro withdrawal button! Luckily I was able to make them leave by threatening them with the Police and was able to hang on to my dosh. It dawned on me later that the best thing to do in that situation is to hit the 'annuler' button straight away. Spoke later to a French woman who said this sort of thing is not uncommon in Paris and it is best to take cash out from a machine located inside a bank branch.
