Whenever I am at an ATM, making a withdrawal, I am always extra careful.

And no, it is not because someone might nick my money.

It has to do with the deep fear and shame of someone looking at my account balance.

There is also an unsaid rule—stand one hand apart from the person at the machine.

Now, Yishun might be back to its shenanigans, since our President, Halimah Yacob will be moving out of her place.

Ronald Tan wrote in to STOMP about his son’s unfortunate experience at the ATM in Block 101 Yishun Ring Road last Friday (Oct 6) at about 12:35 pm.

Here’s what happened on that day

His son withdrew $1,000 but it was stolen in a split second.

He was distracted by a call and didn’t notice someone else taking his money away.

Still, in a state of bewilderment, he asked the lady behind him if she saw what happened to the cash.

According to the lady, a Chinese man in his mid-thirties took the money and she assumed that he was going to hand it over to Roland’s son.

That lady must be a glass-half-full kind of person. #JustSaying

That guy walked away FFS.

Advised to lodge a police report

He spoke to a service manager at one of the POSB branches who advised him to lodge a police report.

He and his dad (Roland) lodged a report at the Yishun North Neighbourhood Police Centre.

Roland also mentioned that he would like to alert the public that there is an opportunist hanging around the ATM in the area for quick cash.

From what I know, if you leave your cash at the dispenser after a withdrawal, the machine will take it back.

So it makes me wonder—how careless can the victim be or how fast can the suspect be?

This should be a lesson for all of us, always be extra careful when you’re making any kinds transactions.

It only takes a split second for a thief to act out.
