Never Put Your Money in This Bank

by Paul Strauss

I’m always wondering about those suspicious looking automatic teller machines you see in every little bodega and convenience store these days. You know… Will my ATM card get eaten? Will they steal my PIN number? Will it wipe all the money out of my bank account?

Apparently, the Russian bank which owns this ATM either didn’t bother to activate the copy of Windows installed on its internal computer, or is running a bootleg copy of the operating system. Either way, its done nothing to instill confidence in my use of ATMs.

Russian ATM With Unactivated Windows

It’s bad enough that so many our our financial transactions run through such an insecure and unstable operating system as Windows, but this has gotta take the cake.

Now I don’t know much about the liquidity of the banks in Russia, but I’d say to steer clear of this one for sure.
