Loc: Second Circle of Hell.
A heads up for you all. A friend was in Birkenhead yesterday. They were at the cashpoint and behind them was a woman with a child who was misbehaving. The woman looked at my friend and rolled her eyes as if to say "aren't kids a pain sometimes". The woman watched her slyly as she took her money out and put it in her pocket.

Next thing they knew, the same woman was coming towards her as if to go to hug her. My friend backed off but the woman lurched towards her. As she did that, a male grabbed her from behind and took the money out of her pocket. It was a sizeable amount as they're going away on holiday and it was their spending money.

Please be extra alert when at the cashpoint as it's not the first case this week and I doubt it will be the last frown

Nasty experience. Good argument for getting cashback at the supermarket instead of going to the cashpoint, but I appreciate there's probably a limit on amounts doing it that way. Safer, though; store security present, cameras etc.

A*seholes! We were warned at the beginning of uni that people will wait behind you and just take the money out of the atm before you could, it's so cheeky. And I have noticed a lot more people asking for change, some guy stopped me the other day asking me to buy him a subway (does he know how much subway costs??) and I said I couldn't cos I'm nearly skint as it is, so he gave me this narky look and said 'okay' like I was the one who kicked him out his house. Didn't look like he'd been 'sleeping rough' sigh.

Sorry this has happened, but why put money in your pocket at a cashpoint? Seems very irresponsible. Always put money away in a purse or wallet in front of you out of the view of others in the queue, and move away in a safe way, people really should take more responsibility for their money sometimes, all said very sorry thing to happen to your friend.

And please dont have a go at me, I was just thinking out loud, if I was taking large amounts out of a cashpoint at this time of year, I would be extremely careful thats all.

so sorry for your friend Wench frown

BUT I also agree with Sallybear & Ste, please please start being more vigilant and more aware of your surroundings, especially when you're at cash machines and ESPECIALLY this close to christmas.
