ATM Safety Tips
Ø Stay Alert.
Ø Keep your PIN confidential.
Ø Observe your surroundings before conducting a transaction. Choose well-lit, well-placed ATMs where you feel comfortable.
Ø Change your PIN periodically, and if you think it may have been compromised, change it immediately.
Ø Avoid opening your purse, bag or wallet while in the queue for the ATM.
Ø Block the view of others when using the ATM
Ø Look for possible fraudulent devices attached to an ATM.
Ø Only enter your PIN once for a transaction. If you are prompted to enter your PIN twice cancel the transaction and check your online statement or contact a representative at the bank to be sure the transaction does not charge you.
Ø Minimize time spent at the ATM when conducting a transaction after hours. Put your ATM card away and don’t count your money, immediately leave.
Ø Save your receipts.
