Banks in Boracay, alert on possible recurrence of ATM scammers’ modus this December

Written by Christy Dela Torre

Aiming to deter the recurrence of ATM skimming incident last June, the banks in Boracay are now ensuring a tight inspection on their ATM machines.

More so that this is the month of December and many of their clients have money withdrawal transactions.

According to Metro Bank Boracay Branch, their head office sends them weekly reminders that include the security of the ATM.

They are also conducting a daily monitoring and check up of the machines, and ensuring that they are alert for any untoward modus.

Meanwhile, Metro Bank reminds its clients to cover the ATM Encrypting PIN Pad when punching in their pin numbers and to keep their receipts.

This is to keep the scammers from looking at possible ways to target them as a victim.
