Police Notice - High Barnet - Cash Point Scams

The Police wish you to be aware that there have been a number of scams at local cash points in the area over the last week. Methods used are still the same as before:

  • Distraction at the cash point when using your card.

  • People hovering around a cash point, your card stays inside the machine and, when you go inside to tell bank staff, those outside use a magnetic strip to remove your card from the machine.

Be aware: If anyone tries to distract/talk to you or even gets too close, abort your transaction, remove your card and try later elsewhere.

Use an ATM only when necessary: Take cash-back from shops when possible. If possible take someone with you when you use an ATM.

Report anything suspicious.
