11 Ways to Protect against Debit Card Fraud
Tips for you, Our Member.
Update your contact information with your financial
institution. Your bank can't ask you about a suspicious
charge unless it has your current phone number.
Copy the customer service phone number from the back of each
of your debit or credit cards and keep this list in a
separate location from your purse or wallet in case a thief
steals the latter.
Let issuers know your travel dates and destination. If your
card gets swiped at an unusual location, the card issuer may
decline the suspicious transaction.
Sign up for online banking offered by your financial
institution. These will inform you when particular changes
occur, such as irregular card activity.
Stay away from ATMs that appear dirty or in disrepair. At
best, such ATMs may not work when used, and at worst, may be
fake machines set up to capture card information.
Do not use ATMs with unusual signage, such as a command to
enter your PIN twice to complete a transaction.
Watch out for ATMs that appear to have been altered. If
anything on the front of the machine looks crooked, loose or
damaged, it could be a sign that someone attached a skimming
Avoid using the ATM if suspicious individuals are standing
nearby. Criminals may try to distract you as you use the
machine to steal your cash, or watch as you type your PIN.
Be aware that if your card gets stuck in the machine and
someone approaches to help, it may be a scam. A criminal may
be trying to watch as you enter your PIN code.
If your card gets stuck in the machine, call your financial
institution promptly to report the incident.
As you key in your PIN, cover the keypad with your other
hand to block anyone, or a camera, from viewing the numbers
