Debit Card Safety
following suggestions are helpful tips to keep both you and your money
safe when using an ATM:
Prepare your ATM transaction at home (such as
filling out a deposit slip) to minimize your time at the ATM. Have
your ATM card and other items in-hand and ready to go. Avoid digging
through your wallet or purse while at the ATM.
Protect your PIN (Personal Identification Number).
Donít write it down and do not keep it with your ATM card.
When using an ATM, be mindful of your surroundings.
Look out for suspicious activity, be sure the site (including
walkways and parking lot) are well-lit. If you notice anything
that makes you uncomfortable, go to another location.
If possible, take someone with you when you make a
transaction. But donít accept assistance from anyone.
Wait until you are home, or in secure surroundings,
to count your money.
Take your ATM transaction slips with you. Do not
leave them behind or throw them in the ATM trash as they contain
important account information.
If you lose your ATM card or if it is stolen, or you
lose your PIN, notify your credit union immediately by calling
