BE careful at the cashpoint

Always check the machine carefully before use - especially the card slot to make sure there are no devices or anything unusual attached.

Watch out for anyone close by - if they seem too close, cancel the transaction and go to another machine - and do not let yourself be distracted by anyone.

Cover your hand as you enter your PIN by holding your other hand above it.

Wherever possible, always use the same ATM machine, and preferably use one inside the bank if possible.

Always take your receipt - it doesn't contain your full number, but it is best not to give criminals any information at all.
