    Dodgy ATM? 12th Jul 18 at 10:16 AM
    Went to the atm outside Barclays and one had a rubber thing around where the card goes in and the other one didnít ? I asked a staff member and they said it should be ok ?
    Anyone know if it sounds legit ?

    As always, if you're in any doubt, don't use it!

    Are you sure it wasn't a durex?

    Basically, if one has some sort of contraption and the other one dosen't I know which one I'll be using. You're right to report it though...the next person may well have fallen for it.

    I asked a staff member and they said it should be ok ?
    'Should be okay', dosen't really inspire a lot of confidence. They should've at least come out and had a look.

    BTW, you should post a picture. Maybe ex-banker members (on here) who's been in the business for long can tell you straightaway.
