The usual crowd at the show grounds offer cash out over EFTPOS with a transaction fee ($3.00). While I have no issue with this (everyone is out to make a buck) what I found somewhat concerning is that the hard installed ATMs were disabled (ASB ATM where the cash out was happening) forcing everyone to use some third party with the transaction fee. I have the following 2 questions.
1) Does the Showground/organiser have the right to disable these machines for their own gain or do they require concent from the respective banks?
2) Shouldn't the Showground/organiser inform their perspective customers that ATMs will be intentionally disabled for the event?
This just feels wrong in this day and age.
