Customers worry over faulty ATMs

Dubai: Residents have complained about several faulty Mashreq bank ATMs both in Dubai and Sharjah.

Customers said for the past three days they have been facing problems in withdrawing cash from the bank's ATMs. But the Mashreq Bank claimed that there is no technical problem with any of its ATMs and people would have faced difficulties in withdrawing cash because of heavy weekend customer traffic. The bank also assured it would look into the complaints.

Vipin Das, a Dubai resident, said he tried to use the ATM machine on Shaikh Zayed Road both on Saturday and Sunday, and it showed technical error.

"I contacted their support desk and I was told that they will fix it within two days," said Vipin, who works for a private firm in Bur Dubai. Machines in Lamcy Plaza and Mall of the Emirates are also reported to have shown similar glitches.

Zulekha, a Sharjah resident, said she was unable to withdraw cash from the bank ATM near the corniche. "Even on Sunday morning, when there was not many people using the machine, it was giving error message," complained Zulekha, a housewife.

The bank has assured that they will look into the issue and ensure that customers face no difficulties in accessing the service.

According to Sharjah resident Mohammad, the machines were not repaired until last afternoon.
