Theft can happen anywhere near the bank even when you want to withdraw your money from the Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Most people do panic when thieves escort them to a teller machine to forcefully do a withdrawal.
Although ATMs in the country are usually guarded by security guards, there are chances thieves can design a way to bypass security protocols in the area.
When such happens, though it is very rare, you need first to master your pin off head and also able to spell it on the reverse. For example, if your pin is 4321 then on the reverse it will be 1234.
This is because when you oppositely enter your pin, it will send an alert to the police and the machine will appear to be malfunctioning, as money will be stuck on the machine as police prepare to come to your rescue.
Furthermore, there are usually cameras that have been installed in these places and any suspicious activities are usually monitored by security agencies manning the CCTV.
Besides, always cover yourself when entering the Personal Identification Number (PIN) as hawk-eyed thugs might be in the area checking all your activities.
Security starts with you. Don't lose your hard-earned cash to unscrupulous individuals.
