PROTECT YOURSELF: ATM SAFETY

0

As part of its Crime Prevention Strategy the Guyana Police Force has issued Crime Prevention tips for the public.

The tips come with this warning from the Police: “Crime can happen anywhere. Protect yourself, others and property by staying alert, safety conscious and informed. Trust your instincts, if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.”

ATM SAFETY

  1. Try to plan ATM visits during the day, rather than after dark.
  2. Choose an ATM location that is in a busy, public place.
  3. Be ready with your card handy but not in plain view.
  4. Go with a friend, especially if you must use an ATM at night.
  5. Stand directly in front of the machine to conceal your personal PIN number.
  6. Cancel you transaction and walk away if anything seems suspicious.
  7. Pocket your money immediately. You can count it later.
  8. Immediately report lost or stolen ATM cards.
