Not to make light of a scary incident that could have turned out even worse, but.....

Reminds me of that cartoon showing two line-ups at an outdoor ATM: one of folks lining up to take money out of the machine, the other lined up to take the money from the first line.

If I recall Elektra's set-up, the banking area is down at the back of the store. Easy for thieves to see who has gone into the store solely to access the banking area.

A gringo friend always used the ATMs at Santander on Juarez. Soon as he had his cash, he jumped into a taxi right at the door and was gone.

A few years ago, a local cashed a very large cheque at Scotiabank on Juarez and was robbed and shot as soon as he exited the bank, right in the bank parking lot. It's the wild west, folks.
