ATM machines have been incorporated in our way of life. Using an ATM machine safely requires awareness and a little planning. Most ATM robberies occur at night between 8:00 PM and midnight. ATM robbers usually position themselves nearby waiting for a victim to approach and withdraw cash. -
Tips that can make the process a little safer: - • Use only ATM machines in well-lighted, high-traffic areas. Don't use ATM machines that are remote or hidden such as being located behind buildings, behind pillars, walls, or away from public view. Beware of obvious hiding places like shrubbery or overgrown trees. • Choose an ATM that looks and 'feels' safer, even if it is a couple of miles out of the way. Try and limit your use to daylight hours. Take someone with you after hours, if you can. When you drive up to an ATM location, scan the area for any suspicious persons. If you see anyone suspicious standing nearby or sitting in a car, drive away. • When you approach an ATM on foot be prepared and have your access card ready. Memorize your personal PIN number to prevent loss and speed the transaction. After inserting your card and your PIN number keep an eye out behind you. Never accept an offer to help or request for help from a suspicious person ahead of you at the machine. If anyone suspicious or seemingly dangerous approaches terminate your transaction and leave immediately, even if it means running away and leaving your ATM card in the machine. • Have your card ready and leave quickly, not counting your cash in public. • Beware of offers for help from strangers during an ATM transaction. • Don't fight with or attempt to follow the robber. • Drive or walk to a safe place and immediately call the police. - 🚨 REMEMBER 🚨
