ATM Maker to Pay $50G for Not Posting Fees

A West Coast provider of ATMs has agreed to a $50,000 settlement over claims that some of its machines in Massachusetts lacked mandatory fee notices. Under state law, the disclosures are supposed to notify consumers how much they will be charged to use the ATM before they proceed with debit or credit card transactions. In addition to paying the $50,000, Merrimak ATM Group of Rohnert Park, Calif., pledged to update its compliance procedures and perform regular reviews of its machines to ensure ongoing compliance. "ATM fees are often highest at convenience stores, parking garages and other establishments where consumers may be tempted to get cash quickly," stated Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, "so companies should be held accountable for providing the appropriate notifications."
