Stay Safe While Using the ATM

  • Observe your surroundings. If the ATM is obstructed from view or poorly lit, go to another machine.

  • Take a friend along, if you can, especially at night.

  • Look for suspicious activity. If you feel uneasy, cancel your transaction and leave the area immediately.

  • Don’t display your cash. Put it away immediately and always take your receipt.

  • If you drive up to an ATM, be sure to keep your doors locked and engine running while conducting your transaction.

  • If you are followed after using an ATM, go to a crowded, well-lit area and call the police.

  • Look for possible fraudulent devices attached to the ATM. If something is suspicious, report it to the financial institution that owns the machine.
