Advice to ATM users

Here is some advice for your safety, when using ATMs:
When you use ATMs:

  • Before starting with your transaction, carefully check the surroundings for any suspicious movements.

  • Make sure that there is no added device at the ATM premises, the presence of which cannot be justified.

  • If you spot any suspicious objects, alterations or signs at the card slot, such as a distorted frame, scratches, additional devices, holes etc, avoid using this particular ATM and immediately report your findings to the Bank.

  • In case the ATM keeps your card or in case you encounter any problem whatsoever during the transaction, report it only to the Bank that issued your card.

  • Do not trust unknown people offering to help you use the ATM or asking for your Personal Identification Number.

  • In case the ATM breaks down, dial only the telephone numbers of the Bank.

  • When entering your PIN, "protect" the keyboard, so that no one standing around can see the four digit number.

  • If you need to use an ATM at night and at an isolated area, make sure you are not alone.

  • If you use an ATM inside a separate booth, do not allow to people you do not know to enter this area during your transaction.

  • When using an ATM, do not leave your keys or valuable objects in your car nor the car engine turned on.
