Always be alert when using an ATM. At night, try to have someone with you. Report anything suspicious and leave immediately. Fill out deposit forms ahead of time. Have your card ready to use and put it away immediately after using it. Carefully protect your card and never tell anyone your PIN number, nor should you write it down.
Takeaway: Stay alert when using ATMs, having your card ready and putting it away immediately after use. Guard your card carefully and keep your PIN private.
