ATM Safety Tips
An Automatic Teller Machine, or ATM, is a modern invention that many of us depend on almost every day. The convenience and ease of use makes it a handy alternative to a regular bank visit. However, any transaction involving money can be dangerous if you let your guard down. Follow these safety tips to keep your ATM visits both convenient and safe:
At a drive-up ATM, keep all windows closed except the one you are using, and all vehicle doors locked. Keep the vehicle running and watch the vehicle's front, rear, and sides. If someone approaches your vehicle on foot, cancel the transaction and leave.
If you drive to the ATM and then exit your vehicle to use the ATM, lock the vehicle doors after you exit it. Keep your keys handy so you can re-enter your vehicle quickly after completing your transaction.
When approaching the ATM, be alert for anything suspicious, such as two or more people in a nearby vehicle or someone "hanging around" the area, especially if no one else is at the ATM.
If possible, try to use the ATM during daylight hours.
After dark, avoid using an ATM with shrubbery, etc. that prevents a clear view of the area. If the area is not well lighted or the lights are out, don't approach the ATM.
Do not select an ATM at the corner of a building. Corners create a blind area in close proximity to the customer's transaction. Select an ATM located near the center of a building. An ATM further from the corner reduces the element of surprise by an assailant and increases effective reaction time by the user.
As far as your security is concerned, you can never be too careful, too prepared or too aware. Share this information with family and friends. Schedule family discussions and practice regularly to ensure that everyone you know is safe and informed.
