It would be hard to spot even one person who hasn’t had a bad experi-ence with an ATM transaction, payment at the point of sale (PoS) machine or online payment. There are frequent incidents where while withdrawing cash from an ATM, the message from the bank arrives on the phone informing that money has been deducted from the account but no cash comes out of the ATM.
