Follow these handy ATM safety tips

Here are some ATM safety tips that can protect you from being robbed.

Card and ATM crime:

* Have your card ready in your hand before you get to the ATM.

* Do not use the ATM if there are suspicious-looking people nearby.

* Do not use the ATM if the area is poorly lit.

* Do not use it if you think it has been tampered with.

* If the ATM is not working as it should, press the cancel button, take your card and go to another ATM.

* Take your time to finish your transaction and put your card and cash in your wallet, handbag or pocket before leaving.

* Always cover the hand that is typing in the Pin number when at the ATM.

* Do not accept help from strangers or in fact anyone that has been friendly towards you or a person you hardly know. They could be trying to distract you in order to get your card or Pin.

* Never let the card out of your sight when making payments.

* Never share your Pin number with anyone, including family members or bank officials.

Carrying Cash Safely:

* Carry as little cash as possible.

* If you are a member of a stokvel or a savings club, arrange for the club’s payout to be electronically transferred into each club member’s personal account or accounts of their choice.

* Alternate the days and times that you deposit cash.

* Do not mention at the workplace when you are going to the bank for cash.
