ATM Safety Tips
Only use ATM machines in well-lighted, open, high-traffic areas
Use ATMs at inside locations when possible
If the lights around an ATM are not working, do not use that machine
Avoid bank ATM machines adjacent to obvious hiding places, thick bushes, etc.
Avoid walk-up ATM machines; use the drive up machines if possible
Avoid ATM machines at night
When you approach an ATM, scan the area first for loiterers or suspicious persons
Have your card ready and leave quickly; do not count your cash in public
Keep your pass code private.  Do not write the code on your card or within your wallet.
Do not use machines if you observe odd mechanisms attached to the card reader.  These can be used to copy your information and gain access to your account.  Check with your bank about new equipment on the ATM if you have any concerns.
Walk, run, or drive away immediately if your instincts tell you so
Beware of offers for help from strangers during an ATM transaction
If you are robbed at an ATM, drive or walk to a safe place and immediately and call 911, giving a detailed description of the suspect
