As a result Argenta customers who live near the Dutch border are no longer able to make cash withdrawals from their local cashpoint. Dozens of ATMs are hit.
Argenta has been targeted by gangsters four times so far this year. A bank spokesman was unable to say how long the ATMs are out of service.
"It's a temporary measure" says Christine Vermylen. "We want to prevent further damage or anybody being hurt. It's not something we want to see!"
Earlier high street banks BNP Paribas Fortis, KBC, ING and Belfius as well as the bpost bank decided to close access to ATMs inside bank offices from 11PM.
