My Mum (77 with Vascular Dementia & Alz) was using a cashpoint at the supermarket the other day. A couple of lowlifes(don't know how else to describe them) were standing very close by. Mum has trouble remembering PIN so has it written in diary!! She got the PIN wrong and as she cancelled the transaction the card was returned and instantly whipped away. Fortunately my Uncle was nearby and gave chase. The police & bank were excellent in their prompt help and no lasting harm done. My biggest concern (other than Mum's safety) was the amount of money in Mum's account. I have since transferred most of her money to a savings account so that should anyone get hold of her card there would only be £100s in the bank instead of £1000s . I had never really thought about money accumulating in the account (Mum gets far more pension than she needs) but be aware how vulnerable loved ones money can be in the wrong hands.
