The Bankers Association of Trinidad and Tobago says several safety measures have been put in place to apprehend any individual who engages in any type of criminal activity against the banks or its customers.
BATT says it remains concerned about the recent reports of robberies that seemed to be related to cash withdrawals from various financial institutions.
With regards to the new fraud typology, BATT says there have been no shimming incidents across all banks in Trinidad & Tobago.
The new chip technology rolled out by all member banks prevents the successful swiping of cards locally.
BATT remains committed to working with all key stakeholders and its customers to ensure a safe environment is created while banking and in instances where any criminal offence is committed the perpetrators are brought to justice.
