In this image taken Saturday, March 16, 2013,  people queue to use an ATM machine outside of Bank of Cyprus branch in southern port city of Limassol, Saturday, March 16, 2013. Many rushed to cooperative banks which are open Saturdays in Cyprus after learning that the terms of a bailout deal that the cash-strapped country hammered out with international lenders includes a one-time levy on bank deposits. The move, decided in an extraordinary meeting of the finance ministers of the 17-nation eurozone in the early hours Saturday, is a major departure from established policies. Analysts have warned that making depositors take a hit threatens to undermine investors' confidence in other weaker eurozone economies and might possibly lead to bank runs.

Automated teller machines are having a moment right now. Specifically, ATMs in the tiny island nation of Cyprus, which is at the center of a massive bailout mess that has shaken the global markets.

Before this week, it's possible that you'd never seen a photograph of a Cypriot ATM. But now, owing to the fact that nobody really knows anything about Cyprus aside from the fact that it's in danger of having a bank run, they're everywhere you look. Newspapers, websites, TV networks — no news editor can dodge the allure of these red-hot Cypriot money machines.

The ATM pictured above is one of the hottest numbers making the rounds. Here are six others:

People wait and use the ATM machines outside of a Laiki Bank branch in capital Nicosia, Cyprus, Sunday, March 17, 2013. Cyprus parliament had postponed the debate and vote on the controversial levy on all bank deposits that the cash-strapped countrys creditors demanded in exchange for euro10 billion (US$13 billion) in rescue money, officials said.

People queue to withdraw money from an ATM at the Bank of Cyprus main office in Athens on March 19, 2013 while Cypriot banks remain closed in Greece until March 21. Athens was "ready" to absorb the subsidiaries of three Cyprus banks active in Greece, the Greek finance minister said as the eurozone sought to amend a controversial levy on the island nation's bank deposits.
