ATM Safety Tips for the Holidays

Your safety is important to us.  For this reason, here are some general safety tips to remember during the busy holiday season and year-round.

  • Observe your surroundings before using an ATM.  If the machine is obstructed from view or poorly lit, visit another ATM.
  • Shield the screen and keyboard so anyone waiting to use the ATM cannot see you enter your PIN or transaction amount.
  • Put your cash, card, and receipt away immediately.  Count your money later, and always keep your receipt.
  • If you see anyone or anything suspicious, cancel your transaction and leave immediately.  If anyone follows you after making a transaction, go to crowded, well-lit area, and call the police.
  • When using an enclosed ATM that requires you to use your card to open the door, avoid letting strangers follow you inside.
  • When using a drive-up ATM, make sure all passenger car doors are locked and windows are up.
  • Do not leave your car unlocked or engine running when you get out to use an ATM.
  • Plan your ATM visit - check with your financial institution to determine ATM availability and any daily withdrawal limits on particular ATMs to avoid having to make multiple stops.

 

Protect Yourself Against Social Media Scams
Just a reminder that New Horizons Credit Union has a system that monitors members' accounts for possible fraud.  You may be contacted if fraud is suspected, but NHCU will never ask for personal information such as online credentials, your entire card number, account number, or social security number via email, voice, or text messaging.  To report fraudulent charges, or a lost or stolen card during business hours, contact our Call Center at (251) 316-3240.  After hours, call (800) 449-7728.
 
There are many forms of social media that we use day in and day out - with friends and in doing business.  All forms of social media have their share of scams by some very creative fraud artists who can cause everything from computer viruses to ID Theft if you fall victim.
Protect yourself on social media by taking the same basic steps as you would for any other method of keeping your data safe:  Don't share with strangers, know who you are communicating with and verify their identities, be aware that scams exist, and remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it is.  
*If you ever feel you have been a victim of fraud, please contact your credit union or identitytheft.gov
