Using Cash Machine Safely

The likelihood of becoming a fraud victim at a cash machine is very low and the following points will help keep your cards and cash safe:

Always put your own safety first. Don’t use a cash machine if you notice anyone behaving suspiciously around it or you spot anything suspicious on the cash machine itself - and report your suspicions to the bank concerned or the police.
If your card is retained by the cash machine contact your card issuer immediately.

Going abroad with cards

Only take the cards you intend to use – store the rest securely at home. Make a note of your card issuers’ emergency contact numbers and keep the information somewhere other than your purse or wallet.
