Mary Rhodes is back with three more stories from across the Midlands. We investigate the criminals stealing cash straight out of our bank accounts, and uncover the new technology that's making it easier than ever to become a victim of cashpoint skimming.

  • Tackling growing cash machine crime

    Cash point ATM

    Almost eight million Britons use a cash point every day amounting to three billion withdrawals every year.


    But who is watching when we access our accounts and how safe are transactions at ATMs?


    Cash machine crime tripled last year in the UK with thieves using more sophisticated tactics like "skimming".


    Watch the video feature on the BBC Nwes website.
