The sad truth is that there are people who will try and scam the vending machine that you install, either by coin fraud, break-ins, vandalism or other types of theft. To counter this, many vending machines have fraud proofing measures as part of their design, such as currency detectors to prevent fraudulent coins or worthless items being used for payment, strong locks and kick proof outer casing, machines that are designed to only accept rechargeable payment cards or keys and even automated alerts and surveillance cameras to collect images of any wrongdoing. Ensuring your vending machine is located in a popular and indoor location can also help to discourage fraud.
