11. Safeguard your card and PIN
Remember that an ATM card, with the proper indication number, allows an individual to access the money in your account. Make sure your ATM card is stored in a secured area. Never keep your PIN and your card in the same place. Try to refrain from copying your PIN. If you ever forget your PIN, just contact us for a reminder.
12. ATM Receipts
Never discard your ATM receipts near an ATM. Always secure your receipt when leaving the ATM and shred it as your means of disposal. Don t write down your PIN number least not on your ATM card. Memorize it. Further, don t disclose it to anyone, not even the bank officials.
13. Walk up ATM precautions
When using a walk up ATM, please be sure to position yourself so no one can observe you entering your PIN. Maintain a polite distance while waiting to use an ATM and make sure others do so too. If someone is crowding you at an ATM, leave immediately and come back later.
14. If your card is lost
If your card is ever lost or stolen, please report it to us as soon as you notice it missing. By reporting the missing card immediately, you will minimize your loss and liability. Do not use the ATM where the card reader appears to be tampered with, broken, scratched, damaged, sticky with glue, has extra wiring or loose parts around the slot, difficulty in inserting the card etc. These could be signs of skimming machine having been installed.
15. Check your statements
Each month, check your statement for debits you did not authorize. If you see any unauthorized debits, please contact us immediately. If there are people around, make sure that you shield your hand while entering your PIN. No one should be able to make out what numbers you are punching in.
