There's a television commercial that shows two bank employees who get excited when they see a regular customer approaching the bank doors, but then become dejected when she walks past the building.

A man dressed as Alexander Hamilton steps into the picture to say the customer is taking advantage of the bank's new smartphone app, uses the bank's other online services and doesn't need to come in any more.

A growing number of bank customers are turning to online banking and mobile banking. According to researchers at Moscow-based security firm Kaspersky Lab, one in five bank customers are using a mobile device to store banking information.
