Since you have to be at the ATM anyway, why use your mobile?
I wondered the same thing, but here are the two scenarios described in the article:
1. You forgot your wallet or ATM card, but have your phone with you.
2. Once you make the request on your phone, you get a six digit PIN that is good for three hours. You could call a kid at college and give them the PIN to use as a a quick way to get money to them (they’d only get the amount you requested.)
Hope Im standing near an ATM when someone’s phone does a butt-call to dispatch thier cash!
It would be a way to allow someone else access to specific withdraw by calling them and telling them the 6 digit access that only last 3 hours and has a specific amount tied to it.
I’m thinking a parent and a distant college kid as a reason to use it.
