“Cell phone was stolen in Graham, NC and the suspect used the ecoATM to obtain money.
The law enforcement team was absolutely awesome in handling the matter! I am well beyond pleased with the promptness, amount of information provided, and quality of the photographs of the suspect. In matters such as this one, law enforcement is working for the victim, trying to locate the stolen property and get it returned promptly. Between the ecoATM LE team and my neighboring agency (Burlington Police Department), I could not have asked or dreamed of a better outcome. I am confident in knowing that if I call upon ecoATM again in the future, they will yet again exceed my expectations. I commend you all and sincerely thank you for your diligence and professionalism.”
