  • Try to use ATMs during daylight hours. If you must go at night, do not go alone.
  • Avoid ATMs that are not well lit or clearly visible from the street.
  • Be aware of people loitering or sitting in cars around ATMs.
  • Prepare your transaction ahead of time. Do not spend much time at the machine.
  • Do not give out your Personal Identification Number (PIN) to anyone! Many
  • thieves will attempt to steal your PIN number by calling you on the phone and
  • claiming they are the police, security officers, or bank officers. Memorize it and
  • do not keep a written copy of it in your wallet.
  • Either keep your ATM receipt or tear it up and throw it away.
