Protect Your Identity While at the ATM
Keep your PIN (Personal Identification Number) private - Do not write your PIN on your card or keep it in your wallet. Memorize it or keep it at home.
Protect your privacy - Be aware of others in line behind you. Position yourself in front of the ATM keyboard to prevent anyone from observing your PIN.
Be prepared - Fill out deposit forms and have your card out and ready to use before approaching the ATM.
Drive-up ATMs - Remember to keep your doors locked, your other car windows up and your car running.
Guard your ATM card like you do cash, checks and credit cards.
Save your receipts - Do not leave your receipt at the ATM. Remember to record each transaction and match it to your monthly statement.
Stay alert - Be aware of your surroundings, especially at night. Park in a well-lit area and have someone accompany you. If you notice anything suspicious, use another ATM or come back later.
Report suspicious behavior - If you notice anything unusual, cancel your transaction, pocket your card and leave immediately. Go to a safe place and call the police if you suspect dangerous or illegal activity.
