Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0822525A2] An automated teller machine having a processor (32), a display (20), a key pad (16), and a cash dispenser slot (18) is provided with a memory unit (34) programmed to recognise a 'panic' code keyed in by a user under threat of personal attack or theft of cash or user card. In response, the machine operates in an apparently normal way and displays apparently normal messages, to reduce the personal risk to the user while, for example, retaining the user's card and providing no cash. An alarm message may be sent to a police station or central security office. <IMAGE>
