Bring a friend if you need to use an ATM after dark. There is safety in numbers.
Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid ATM locations that are not maintained or are poorly lighted.
If youve already started a transaction and notice something suspicious, cancel the transaction and leave the ATM immediately.
Pocket your cash immediately after the transaction. Count it in the safety of your car or home.
Take your transaction receipt with you. Do not leave it at the ATM.
Memorize your secret PIN (Personal Identification Number). Do not write your PIN on your card and do not share your PIN with others.
These tips are also important when using night depository facilities.
