ATM skimmers are devices that criminals place over or on ATM machines to steal your card information, including your personal identification number (PIN). While the tricks used by these thieves can be complicated, there are a handful of simple methods to properly protect your financial information.
Choose ATMs Wisely
Look for ones that are within bank perimeters, well lighted, and/or on busy streets. If possible, try to always use the same ATM, since it will be easier to identify abnormalities.
