Tips to Help Prevent Crime at ATMs


There are more than 400,000 ATMs in the United States and that number is growing. While they are remain a great convenience, ATMs have also become a target for fraudsters and robbers with skimming devices and cameras to steal your information. Follow these safety tips when using an ATM:

  • Keep your PIN number a secret. Never write it down or share it with anyone – not even family members.

  • Be aware of your surroundings, particularly at night. Make sure the ATM is free of sight obstructions. If you observe suspicious persons or circumstances, do not use the machine.

  • Bring someone with you when using an ATM at night. If you can’t, use an ATM that is located in a public area like a convenience or grocery store.

  • Have your ATM card ready and in your hand as you approach the ATM.

  • Use your body to “shield” the ATM keyboard as you enter your PIN.

  • Always take your receipts or transaction records with you.

  • Do not count or visually display any money you received from the ATM. Immediately put your money into your pocket or purse and count it later.

  • If you are using a drive-up ATM, be sure passenger windows are rolled up and all doors are locked. If you leave your car and walk to the ATM, lock your car.
