    In a busy mall:

    San Jose Mercury story

    San Francisco Chronicle story

    Not enough detail for a scenario...

    It could be worse.

    09:18am. Nice... Any time, any place.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Yet another good reason to not use ATMs at all.
    Trust in God and keep your powder dry

    Pretty much my feelings...ATMs are a dirtbag magnet.

    I agree re ATMs. As a general rule, when you least expect it, is when you should expect it.

    Here is a street-level view of that specific Bank Of America ATM: click.


    Oakland, California. Typical, smaller "strip mall" arrangement. Relatively busy "six lane" street during the weekday, but likely fairly quiet at 9am on a Sunday morning. Extremely good visibility for a criminal who might be monitoring who's coming and going, from that "mall." Tucked inside the strip mall the way it is, that ATM could be easy pickin's for a motivated robber. Lesson: if awake, use your head.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
