ATM Machines Friend or Foe
ATMs make it easy to access your funds and get cash when you are out and about 24/7. Unfortunately, fraudsters have figured out how to capture your card number and pin through a technique called skimming. Skimming is one of the latest scams out there and happens when you use your ATM or Debit card. We have noticed and increase of fraud on CardTronics ATM machines. These are standalone ATM machines that make it easier for the fraudsters to install their skimming devices. We encourage you to locate a surcharge free CO-OP ATM machine when possible. Visit our website to find a CO-OP ATM near you at ibewuwfcu.com.
You work hard for your money and we have some tips to share in order to help lower your risk of being skimmed:
Inspect the card reader – nothing should be loose or detached from the ATM machine.
Cover your pin when entering it in.
Use ATMs that you are familiar with – you most likely will notice if something is not right.
Notice if there is visible damage to the ATM.
Try to avoid ATMs that are secluded or not visible by those passing by.
