Has anyone ever looked into owning their own ATM? A friend of mine passed the idea along to me and I figured I would do a little research into the feasability of the idea.

Some of the questions that I initially thought of were:

1. What is the cost of the ATM?
2. What is the cost of servicing the ATM (maintenance, cash refill, etc)?
3. Do you need insurance in the event of theft/robbery?
4. Do you need insurance in the event of fraud against a customer?
5. How to find locations to place the ATM?

My initial thought is that most of the "prime" locations for an ATM will probably already have an ATM.

If anyone has ever looked into this or does this, I would welcome any pointers to more information. Thanks.
