France you only get to the ATMs if you do have a working card, the room is controlled with video feed for various reasons, one of them do disallow tempering of the ATMs.
Further the French ATMs are far more secure as the German ones. I did here from 2 persons around here that they hit a tempered ATM (both were lucky enough to recognise it), so I decided I will not take any chance. I have seen a report that some of those tempered ATMs is hardly recognizable as a tempered one. Plus as I still have the envelope unopened with the PIN I can always proof that I never used it. Again thanks to our banks who blame you if your card is getting stolen and despite their bad systems, which allows the card to be used without proper checking to withdraw money.
I don't even have a signature one my bank-card, only via ID. Call me paranoid, but it prevented me from having bad experiences ;)
