Safety & Crime Prevention
Be careful when using an ATM, especially when getting cash. Follow these precautions:
Always watch for suspicious persons or activity around an ATM.
If you notice anything strange, leave and return some other time.
Even if you have already started a transaction, cancel it and leave.
After dark, take a companion along, park close to the ATM in a well-lit area, and lock your car.
If the lights around the ATM aren't working, don't use it.
Use your body as a shield while you enter your access code, so no one can see you type it.
Take all of your transaction receipts with you; don't throw them away near the ATM.
If you get cash - put it away right away; don't stand at the ATM and count it.
Never accept offers of assistance with the ATM from strangers; ask the bank for help.
If you use a drive-up ATM, your vehicle's other doors should be locked with the windows up.
Memorize your access code. Don't write it down and/or carry it with you.
Don't use an access code that is the same as other words or numbers in your wallet.
Never tell your access code to ANYONE (including bank employees, the police, etc.).
Never lend your ATM card to anyone; treat it like cash or a credit card.
If you lose your ATM card, notify your bank or credit union immediately.
