Bankers’ Association Urges Vigilance to avoid ATM Scammers

106

A director of the Jamaica Bankers’ Association, Richard Murray, is warning customers to be more vigilant when doing ATM transactions.

Yesterday the Clarendon Police said they received scores of reports of scammers targeting ATMs in the parish and fleecing people of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Mr. Murray is admitting that with the sophisticated intelligence of the scammers banks can only guarantee limited security to customers.

Mr. Murray says banks are moving closer to implementing a system that allows customers to enter their personal identification number in an electronic device after swiping their credit or debit card at payment terminals.

Under this system a receipt will not be generated.
