ATM Thefts in 2013

Tim McCormack made this Freedom of Information request to Post Office Limited Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Post Office Limited,

Thank you for your reply to my previous FOI request on this matter. Seems to me our Wincor Millionaire was quite a prolific thief if it required a spreadsheet to calculate how many post office ATM machines and total amount he robbed.

a) Could you please tell me how many POL Post Office / BoI ATMs he stole from - I now know of at least 2

b) The total amount he is known to have stolen

In 2013 I owned a building in Duns in which there was a Post Office which my wife was Subpostmistress of and I her assistant. In that building, 6 Market Sq, Duns there was installed a BoI/POL ATM which as building owner I was partly responsible for. I must have missed some communication from POL at that time with regard to a warning that a dodgy Wincor Engineer was operating in the area which I am sure you would have provided to all Post Offices as soon as you knew about the thefts.

Could you please provide me with a copy of that warning you must have sent to all Post Offices in the area at that time.

c) this is not an FOI request, just a piece of advice with regard to previous, current and future FOI requests - the truth is out there and it will come out eventually. Those who try and hide or otherwise obfuscate the evidence will eventually be found out.

Yours faithfully,

Tim McCormack

Dear Post Office Limited,

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately this does not match the information I have at my disposal.

I understand you merely relate to me the answers provided by others within your organisation so you might want to inform them that I will inform the inquiry of the response I have received and they may wish to investigate this further using their statutory powers.

Yours faithfully,

Tim McCormack
