** Select an ATM that is in a well-lighted location.
** Avoid ATM at the corner of a building which often has a blind area in close proximity to the customer’s transaction.
** Identify an ATM with maximum natural surveillance and visibility.
** Avoid ATM with barriers such as shrubbery, landscaping, signs, decorative partitions or dividers blocking the line of sight of the ATM.
** Do not stand at the ATM to count the cash you get – put it away immediately.
** Never accept offers of assistance with the ATM from strangers; ask the bank for help.
** Never lend your ATM card to anyone; treat it as if it were cash.
** If the lights around the ATM are not working properly, do not use it.
** If the ATM keypad appears to be tampered, do not use it.
** Be aware of your surroundings. If you feel uncomfortable, don’t use the ATM.
** Never allow the card to be taken out of your sight.
** If the POS machine is far from you, go personally near to it to use the card.
** Memorize the PIN. Do not share it with anyone. Keep your “secret code” a secret.
** Do not write your PIN on your ATM/Debit Card or store it with the card or in the wallet or mobile phone.
** Cover your hand when entering the PIN. Let others not see the PIN.
** The Debit Card works only when PIN (Personal Identification Number) is correctly entered at the key pad. Yet criminals try to notice the PIN or photograph it with hidden cameras when it is used.
** Details of the card are skimmed with use of various devices attached to ATM or placed in the ATM room. A clone of the card is soon made. The card and the PIN help the criminal siphon money from the account in no time.
