Can you bank on it? How secure are doors at Barbadian ATM’s for after hours service?
For instance on the lighter side, I believe the Public Workers Credit Union, while a Carifs member, nevertheless needs to have ATM’s at Sheraton and in Speightstown – so does BWU’s Credit Union (They have no debit-card and so are not Carifs ready anyhow)! Meanwhile, over at First Caribbean you cannot access your balance if it is not your primary source of financial activity. Yet at BNB-Barbados and Royal Bank of Canada/RBC you can access everything including your credit card account!
What is of more concern to this News-Blog are the supposedly secure magnetic locks at the top of ATM booth-doors, I am not going to say which branches specifically for safety but any bankers reading this? You need to redress your branches right away!
For the most part BNB and RBC remain safe, so far I am yet to encounter any loose yet allegedly locked doors with their branches, but with there are some branches they need to conduct some repairs ASAP – some are more deserted than others, for instance? I will not use that ATM on at night – PERIOD! It is wide open, no booth nor doors – although some branches have okay ATM’s, they need more secure ATM’s all across Barbados!!
However, First Caribbean needs to do some remedial work at quite a few places, the sooner the better!
