I stick to my rule of only using a bank ATM when the bank is open. Just as well. Upon inserting an internationally recognized credit card in a Taipei city bank, the ATM’s own computer went into a boot mode, the receipt slip was a mass of CAPITAL LETTERS that made no sense.
My card was stuck inside.
Bank staff came to the rescue. They returned me the card when I proved I owned it. It worked OK on an adjoining ATM.
Better to have this happen during the day than when the bank is closed.
Maybe foreign cards trigger some machines into panic?
