ATM Scams

We learned during orientation that some ATMs are scams for identity theft.

If you decide to withdrawal cash from an ATM on the street, push the sides of the machine before making your transaction.

A real ATM will not move. IF the ATM appears loose on the sides, its very likely that someone toyed with the machine to somehow steal your credit or debit card information.

It seems silly, but try to be extra cautious when using outdoor ATMs to protect yourself in the long run!
