Rafique Foflonker, spokesperson, said over the past weeks several people have opened cases of being robbed following withdrawals.
“The idea of bank following is not a new thing. However, several robberies have been recorded in a short space of time, following withdrawals at an ATM or bank after the victims were followed.
“Usually when we get big days like Easter, Christmas and now Eid al-Fitr, everyone goes to ATMs to withdraw money for charities or other things.
“The criminals look for victims who are not vigilant. We found that some people go to the ATMs and don’t pay attention to their surroundings,” Foflonker said.
