Protect your PIN, Card and Account

ATM Security | Identity Theft | POS Customer Guide | Internet Security

  • Do not be tricked into providing the three digit or four digit security codes that appear on the front or back of your card to anyone, not even to the bank, cashier or police, except in cases of card transactions on reputable internet websites with companies with whom you feel comfortable performing internet-based payments. These digits help prevent thieves from copying your card.
  • Do not give your card or PIN number to any stranger. Memorize your PIN (if you must write it down, do so in a disguised manner and never carry it with your card). Try not to use obvious and guessable numbers for your PIN like your date of birth. Please remember financial institutions do not use email, telephone or other means to ask you for your PIN.
  • If your card gets retained or lost, or if you are interfered with at a POS, report this immediately to the bank and/or police.
  • Keep your printed transaction record so that you can compare your POS receipts to your monthly statement.
