Tesco to spend £3m on ATM security

26 June 2006  |  6857 views  |  0 ATM

UK supermarket bank Tesco Personal Finance is spending £3 milllion on a package of measures designed to increase the security of its national network of 1900 ATMs.

The advanced security measures, which will include internal anti-skimming devices, enhanced store security and CCTV, will be delivered as part of a rolling programme.

Duncan McKinnell, director of operations at Tesco Personal Finance, says ATM networks across the country are being increasingly targeted by fraudsters and £3 million is a worthwhile investment.

"Customers used our ATMs over 300 million times last year and we want every one of them to feel secure in their use. We believe our investment combined with our customer's own vigilance will help us stay one step ahead of the fraudsters," he adds.
