Protecting your ATM, Debit, or Credit Card
The following tips from the www.ftc.gov website can be helpful in protecting your debit and credit cards:
- Be cautious about disclosing your account number over the phone or internet unless you know you're dealing with a reputable company.
- Cut up old cards – cutting through the account number – before disposing of them.
- Open monthly statements promptly and compare them with your receipts.
- Carry only those cards that you anticipate you'll need.
- Don't carry your PIN in your wallet or purse or write it on your ATM or debit card.
- Never write your PIN on the outside of a deposit slip, an envelope, or other papers that could be easily lost or seen.
