    It’s so stupid, the people who make the bank machines should check with the people who make the doors, and make the bank machine bigger than the door so then you couldn’t steal it

    Life hint, there are easier ways to make money than stealing then having to break into this. They are a pain in the butt even when you have keys and codes

      One cannot become wealthy, truly wealthy, through theft. Why? Because the mindset one has when one steals is that they don’t have enough, so the law of attraction assures they never will have enough. The only way to become truly wealthy is to firmly believe that you have so much that you MUST give some away.

      And no, it does not have to be in the form of cash. Giving a hug is a transfer of wealth.

    someone tried to run off with one with a forklift when I lived i Las Vegas- got to the first intersection before the police finally caught up to him…………

      Theft of the machine and damage to the business is factored in with a cost/benefit analysis. Only a small handful of machines get stolen compared to how many are in use. Would it make financial sense to GPS them? If it did, they would be. If the thefts reach a certain level, I’m sure they would.
