Be Aware Of Your Surroundings
Individuals run the risk of falling prey to identity theft and other fraudulent activities when they’re careless about using ATM machines.
When you approach an ATM, do so with purpose and an awareness of anyone around you. Then, follow these steps to ensure privacy.
- Memorize your PIN and keep it confidential. Do not write it down or keep a copy of it in a wallet or purse where someone can access it.
- Use your body to shield the ATM keypad from people who may be standing nearby as you enter your PIN.
- Do not discard your transaction receipt at the ATM site.
- Immediately report any lost or stolen ATM card to PrimeWay Federal Credit Union by calling (713) 799-6200 or (800) 554-5690, or after hours call (800) 528-2273.
Guard your ATM card and personal information, and you’ll keep your money and identity safe.
