With holiday time approaching, remember the following ATM safety tips:
Try to use ATMs during daylight hours.
If you must go at night, do not go alone and avoid ATMs that are not well-lit or clearly visible from the street.
Be aware of people loitering or sitting in cars near the ATM.
Prepare your transaction ahead of time so you limit your time at the machine.
Make sure to take your receipt with you and do not throw it away in a public trash can.
