ATM/DEBIT CARD SECURITY
ATMs and Points of Sale are a fast and easy way to withdraw cash, check account balances, transfer funds and more. If ATMs are to continue as a convenient way to conduct financial transactions, you must make electronic banking security a priority. Here are some important steps you can take to make ATM/DEBIT CARD security your business.
- Treat your card like cash. Always keep your card in a safe place. It’s a good idea to store your card in a card sleeve. The sleeve protects the card’s magnetic strip and helps ensure that the card functions properly.
- Keep your PIN number a secret. Your ATM/DEBIT CARD card will only work with your personal identification number or PIN. Memorize your PIN. Never write it on your card or store it with the card. Never tell your pin to anyone. Never let someone else enter your code for you.
- Take your ATM/Point of Sale receipt with you. Do not leave it at or near the ATM/Point of Sale.
- Do not give out any information about your ATM/DEBIT CARD card over the telephone. No one needs to know your PIN. Not even your financial institution.
- Report a lost or stolen card at once. Promptly report a lost or stolen card to reduce the chance that it will be used improperly. You will be issued another card.
- Check your receipts against your monthly statement to guard against ATM/DEBIT CARD fraud. You get a receipt a majority of the time when you make an ATM/DEBIT CARD transaction. Verify each transaction by checking receipts against your monthly account statements.
- Be cautious when strangers offer to help you at an ATM. Even if your card is struck or you are experiencing difficulty, you should not allow anyone to distract you while you are at the ATM.
DRIVE-UP ATMS SECURITY
- Keep your engine running, doors locked and windows up at all times when waiting in line at a drive-up ATM.
- If possible, leave enough room between cars to allow for a quick exit should it become necessary.
- If an ATM is obstructed from view or poorly lit, go to another ATM.
- Before rolling down the window to use the ATM, observe the entire area around the ATM.
- Avoid opening your purse, bag, or wallet while waiting for the ATM. Have your card out before you approach the ATM.
- If anyone follows you after making an ATM transaction, go immediately to a crowded, well-lit area and call the police.
