Denmark’s Bank Robbers Count The Cost Of Cashless Society

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on The Times.

This is the second paragraph.

Figures from Finans Danmark, an industry association, show the number of attacks has collapsed in recent years as the shift towards online transactions has led many Danish banks to abandon cash services in branches. While there were 221 bank robberies in 2000, the number of hold-ups in Denmark fell to 121 in 2004, before declining to one in 2021 and none last year.

There were also no attacks on ATM machines.

Doing away with cash certainly cuts crime and it must be twelve years, since a Unite representative on Manchester buses told me he wanted cashless ticketing on Manchester’s buses and trams, as since it had been introduced in London, attacks on staff had declined dramatically.

I also wonder by how much the Income Tax take would rise?

  1. Bring back bank robberies that what I say. By doing so perhaps the criminals might not try to exploit us bank customers with their hacks and phishing scams. I used to think my bank details and other personal information were confidential, now I need two-factor authentication!
