Identity Theft and ATM Safety

ATM Safety

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.
