Fraud Prevention

Cash Trapping

September 19, 2012

Cash trapping is becoming a serious new threat to Automated Banking Machine (ABM) fraud around the world. It occurs when criminals place an object in the ABM’s cash drawer in order to obstruct the cash that gets dispensed when cardholders make a withdrawal of funds from their bank account. The criminals then return at a later point in time to retrieve the “trapped” cash.

Cash trapping is a fairly new threat. Consequently, Interac Association is asking everyone to remain vigilant at this time.

Be on the lookout for the following:

  • scratches and/or sticky residue around the cash
  • dispensing area of the machine
  • perpetrators that may be hanging around the area
  • potential cardholders who may complain to others in line or nearby that the ABM is “not working”
