Protect Your Visa Debit Card!
- Always keep your Visa Debit Card in a safe place. Do not leave it laying around.
- No one should have access to the card but you.
- Keep your Personal Identification Number (PIN) a secret. Never write it down anywhere, especially on the card.
- Never give any information about your ATM card or PIN over the telephone.
Safety Tips: Using an ATM
- Always be aware of your surroundings, especially at night.
- Have your ATM card in your hand as you approach the ATM. Refrain from digging through your wallet/purse/bag at any ATM.
- Check for skimming devices Potential indicators can include sticky residue or evidence of an adhesive used by criminals to affix the device, scratches, damaged or crooked pieces, loose or extra attachments on the card slot, or noticeable resistance when pressing the keypad.
- Be careful that no one can see you enter your PIN at the ATM. Use your other hand or body to shield the ATM keyboard as you enter your PIN into the ATM.
- To keep your account information confidential, 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, park close in a well lit area and lock your car.
- If it is night time, take another person with you, if at all possible.
- If the lights at the ATM are not working at night, don't use it.
- If shrubbery has overgrown or a tree blocks the view, select another ATM and notify the location with the ATM.
