The victims of two heists at FNB branches have hired private investigators as part of their own investigations.
Thieves nabbed 360 safety deposit boxes on 18 December at a FNB branch in Randburg.
A second robbery at the bank’s Parktown branch took place on 31 December.
FNB is not legally responsible for the loss, except if the victims can prove gross negligence.
