"Using Cashpoints" Budapest Warnings Or Dangers Tip by CEP1863
Budapest Warnings and Dangers: 202 reviews and 106 photos
Be very careful when using the numerous cashpoints in and around Budapest.
A favourite trick is to insert a strip of metal into the slot where the money is dispensed. This stops your money from coming out. You go into the shop to report the fault, they quickly remove the strip and your money!!
I was lucky, I managed to ram my hand into the slot before it closed and grab hold of my cash but other friends of mine have not been so lucky.
My tip, if you are near to a bank use their machines which are often inside and protected by security cameras. Avoid the cashpoints attached to shops and petrol stations as well as the stand alone machines.
