“Skimming” isn’t new, but it’s definitely getting more sophisticated! Use these tips to help protect yourself at the ATM:

  • Use a different ATM if:
    • the keypad or card reader are loose
    • the plastic around the keypad or card reader don’t match the rest of  the ATM
  • Don’t assume that ATM’s in well monitored areas are safe
  • Look for tiny cameras watching the keypad and considering covering the keypad with your free hand while you type
  • If your card jams in the reader be wary – jamming indicates there might be a skimmer
