More than 30,000 automated teller machines in Thailand will be revamped to prevent criminal gangs from stealing bank account information amid a surge in thefts, news reports said  Wednesday.

Phol Thanachote, chairman of the Automated Teller Machines’ Business Community, said that special stickers will be affixed to the revamped machines to show they are safe for use, The Nation newspaper reported. The report did not say how the machines were being altered to make them less  theft-prone.
