  1. Home invasions and carjackings usually involve forced ATM withdrawals. This link is to an article about a very specific crime pattern called the “Express Kidnapping” which is basically an abduction and forced ATM withdrawal. It explains the details of how the crime pattern plays out, how to expose the data and most importantly, the details of how political corruption keeps the pattern from being tracked by the police. If you or someone you know was the victim of such a crime, read this and share it with everyone you know. Then send it to your local newspaper, news station, banker and legislator. Get them to investigate it. This applies worldwide, not just in the US. https://atmsafetypin.wordpress.com/2013/07/19/8/
