Quick Tips To Help Protect Yourself
ATM Safety & Security
Here are some helpful tips and precautions to consider when using an ATM:
Avoid going to the ATM alone at night.
If you do need to access an ATM after dark, make sure the ATM and parking lot are well lit. If possible take someone with you or use a drive through ATM.
Don't use an ATM if you notice any suspicious activity.
It is important to be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you notice suspicious activity, find another ATM or come back at a later time. Immediately report any suspicious activity to the police.
Don't count your money at the ATM.
Be aware of your surroundings and wait until you are in your car or, even better, safely at home.
Keep your car running when using a drive-up ATM
When using a drive-up ATM, keep your doors locked, passenger windows rolled up, and the car running. Just be careful that you leave the car in park with the brake on.
Prepare your deposits/transaction ahead of time.
Fill out all deposit slips before you reach the ATM. It is best to have everthing ready prior to visiting the ATM.
