An ATM is a convenient way to get cash when you’re on the go. You can find an ATM almost anywhere – shopping centers, convenience stores, sporting venues, you name it. However, as with any good thing, you need to take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and your money. Criminals take advantage of the accessibility and convenience of ATMs in an effort to defraud unsuspecting consumers.
ATMs and other card-reading devices are susceptible to skimming, a process used by criminals to hijack your card information and steal your money. Skimming is pretty common, but by taking a few simple precautions, you may be able to detect a skimming device and avoid being a victim.
So how can you protect yourself from this fraud? There are certain steps you can take to safeguard your information when using an ATM or other card reader, such as at gas pumps.
At Century Next Bank, our goal is to provide you with the know-how and tools that you need to keep your money safe. If you have any questions, give us a call at 866-454-9228.
