A VISITOR to Solihull left the borough with less than she intended to.
Mary Rogers, from Suffolk, was visiting her son in Solihull and a trip to the sales with her daughter-in-law left the 80-year-old £20 short.
She said a Royal Bank of Scotland cash machine issued what turned out to be a fraudulent note.
Ms Rogers was unaware that the note was a fake until a sales assistant in the House of Fraser store in Mell Square refused to accept it.
Ms Rogers has a receipt which she says proves that the amount was withdrawn from an RBS cash dispenser.
“I haven’t been to any cash machine since then so I know it came from that particular machine in Solihull.
A statement released from RBS said: “We do not believe our ATM will have dispatched a fraudulent note.
“We have very robust systems in place.”
