Many banks have added glass enclosures around their ATMs to provide security – but KIRO 7 has shown that in many cases it doesn’t take a bank-issued card to get inside. Police who investigate street robberies say career criminals are well aware of this security loophole. However, top police officials didn’t know this until seeing video from KIRO 7 – and say ATM users should change their behavior because of the false sense of security. KIRO 7 found – and police confirmed – that most ATM vestibules do not keep a record of which cards were used to open the security door.
