Abstract

It may happen in personal banking machines that banknotes contained in the output gate are pulled back into the machine if they are not withdrawn by the customer in a given time. Withdrawal is detected by sensors, so that it is not known whether the customer has withdrawn only some or the entire bundle of notes. Such partial withdrawal may be carried out intentionally to create the impression that no money was withdrawn.

Manipulation Detector for Personal Banking Machines

       It may happen in personal banking machines that banknotes
contained in the output gate are pulled back into the machine if they
are not withdrawn by the customer in a given time.  Withdrawal is
detected by sensors, so that it is not known whether the customer has
withdrawn only some or the entire bundle of notes.  Such partial
withdrawal may be carried out intentionally to create the impression
that no money was withdrawn.

      For detecting this kind of manipulation, the use of sensors is
proposed which convert changes in traction and pressure on the
resiliently supported axles of the currency transfer means into
signals that can be electrically evaluated.
