  1. It’s about time the banking industry and financial sector in Guyana graduate to a more cashless operation. We need to use more cheques, debit cards, credit cards and internet banking. No one in this day and age should have to be moving large amounts of cash in bags, suitcases and carton boxes. Guyana with all of the so called strides being made has much work to do with regards to the banking sector. This will surely go along way in helping to stem the flow of people’s blood for their hard earned money.

  2. Banking SUCKS!
    Banks should be able to do internet banking by now.
    ROBBERS on motor cycles must be stopped.
    The same way how Forbes Burnham took away guns, take away all motor cycles if they are not registered.
    Special permanent neon plates should be installed OR SOMETHING FOR POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION AT SIGHT.
    The police must have the right to do random checks, BUT SOMETHING MUST BE DONE..

  3. when are we going to name these banks!! this regular robberies of persons leaving banks is too commonplace to be random. it seems that people in the banks are telling of persons transactions.
