Few years ago Central bank of Nigerian introduced a Machine called ATN (Automated Teller Machine) that helps reduce stress and struggles in withdrawing our money from commercial banks and we have been enjoying the services till date but unfortunately this Automated Teller Machine (ATM) has it's up and down and should not be trusted because anything can happen.Why you shouldn't trust Nigerian Bank ATM:
First i decided to write this article because of the numerous disappointment i have encountered while rushing to withdraw my money from the bank using ATM, is either network problem or your money will be debited without being paid.
The worst that can happen to you is when you need money to take someone to hospital and rushed to withdraw money from ATM only to be told that the ATM is out of service and you have to wait for 5 hours.
The recent Issue am facing right now because of this ATM started last week Friday i went to bank to withdraw money using ATM and i received a message after about 2minutes that my ATM Card was trapped inside the machine is (Issue inappropriate) and the card came out but my money was debited without paying me, i thought they will reverse it immediately but unfortunately i waited and the money is gone.
The worst part of it is that i had no other money in my account accept the one they debited but i had no option than to call their costumer care line only to be told to wait for 2 to 5 working days.
The question now is what if am traveling and wanted to collect my money for transportation what will i do? Or if i wanted to use the money instantly maybe to save life?
You see you shouldn't put your trust on those machines called ATM to avoid a very big disappointment because as am talking to you i have not received the money the machine debited since Friday last week.To use Bank ATM's in a safe way:
No one Knows when the problem might occur but i will suggest you withdraw your money ahead of time, for instance if you need the money tomorrow then you need to go and withdraw it today so that you will not be disappointed in anyway and that is the only option so that if anything goes wrong you will start looking for alternatives on time.
