Banken sluiten sealbagautomaten uit veiligheidsoverweging - Brink's Netherlands
Banks close sealbag deposit machine for security reasons
08 Jan 2021
Banks and Geldmaat have decided, on the advice of the police, to temporarily close all more than 500 seal bag deposit machines. Banks are taking this far-reaching decision after a new form of explosive attack earlier this week at a sealbag machine. This means that unexploded explosives can leave behind and there is a risk of personal accidents for users, employees and passers-by. Banks and Geldmaat will therefore close immediately.
Sealbag deposit machines are intended for the deposit of money by entrepreneurs. Now that these machines are being closed for the time being, entrepreneurs can use the cash deposit machines of the banks and Geldmaat. This adds up to more than 1000. The location guide of Geldmaat contains the most up-to-date overview of the alternative disposal locations. Entrepreneurs can also use the secure deposit service of a security transport company.
Banks and Geldmaat regret the necessity for the introduction of this measure and understand that this entails a great deal of inconvenience for entrepreneurs. They are therefore working on a solution that can increase the number of deposit options in the short term. Banks are also happy to talk to stakeholders to discuss the consequences of this measure.
