    Default Canadian Robbed in SD

    Santo Domingo
    A Canadian client (59) of Scotiabank was robbed by two criminals in security uniforms...
    They got away with 200,000 Pesos in cash on a -you guessed it - motorcycle.
    The bank's security guards obviously did nothing to prevent the assault.

    somebody knew was going to do his banking..... plain/simple

    coming from the check cashing business, we always used different routes, different times , different people and different cars

    you CANNOT be too careful about business banking anywhere in the world.

    Those bank guards are useless in most countries.... even the Brinks/Armored guys are benign usually.
    Window dressing......

    Not only robbed apparently, shot in the leg as well.

    Surprises me they did this at that Scotiabank office, I used to work in that building the first 4 years I lived in this country, that place is always swamped with security personnel, not the sole guy with a shotgun, but several professional looking security guys.

    True.
    However, I think it's only Third-World countries where they kill you (all right the Canadian was lucky) for such little money.
    The effectiveness of the DR police force of course also "helps".

    Agreed. My husband's first thought was someone in the bank made a phone call. Can't be too careful anywhere, but in DR you need eyes in the back of your head.

    not true. first, in all countries of the world one can get killed for much less, if not for nothing at all. and second, 200k is most folks here make in a year. substantial amount, in other words.

    exactly deviate.

    my territory was So Philadelphia in the check business..... good and scary

    The RD criminals are amateurs mostly -- real criminals are much more deadly.

    They rarely shoot to kill.... just to keep you still.... robbery and murder are two quite different offenses

    I always make sure my 9mm is with me any time I'm doing any banking in the dr. Unfortunately that's the way it has to be.
