Really? So you think OAP's whizzing around with large amounts of cash weekly from the same spot is completely safe? Know of an old man
just recently had his house raided and cash (pension money from the PO) stolen..the wter meter trick unfortunately. Had that been paid directly to his bank a/c he may have been in a far safer situation.
As time goes by more and more OAP's will be card savvy as they'll have been well used to using them in their adult life so that's becoming far less of an issue- install a few more ATM's around the place- access to cash whenever it's needed.
