OAP claims ATM issued fake note

A VISITOR to Solihull left the borough with less than she intended to.

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Ms Rogers has a receipt which she says proves that the amount was withdrawn from an RBS cash dispenser.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.”
