Subject: RE: BS: Bank Branch Closures
ATMs outside supermarkets etc, and also our local Post Offices, have a limit on how much cash one can get. It's around £100 here.

The maximum amount that can be withdrawn per day depends on the type of account but the standard limit is £300. Higher limits can normally be set by arrangement.

I see the limit as a wise precaution to limit the damage that could be done by a scammer.

And how dare they put limits on how much cash one can obtain from an ATM? It's our money not theirs!

ATMs are for use by all. How much more annoying would it be, not to be able to get any money out because the person before you had emptied the machine?
