ATM card hackers can take advantage of your 'mistakes'!

AUG 12 (WTN) - Withdrawal of money from ATM through debit card or credit card is common nowadays. There will be no part of India where there is no facility of ATM machine to withdraw money. But, it has been observed that due to mistake and inadvertence of the users while using ATM, they face ATM fraud. Let you know that frauds withdraw money from users’ bank account only after taking advantage of the mistake and inadvertence of the users. Today we describe you what kind of precautions you should take while using ATM, so that you can avoid being a victim of fraud.

Whenever you withdraw money from an ATM, first of all keep in mind that the ATM should not be in a secluded place. Try your best to withdraw money from an ATM that is located in a bank branch, or then it should be located in crowded places. This is why, because there is a greater risk of card cloning in the ATMs of deserted areas. Cloning means that hackers steal your debit or credit card data, and they create another card like your card and use it to withdraw money from your bank account.

Whenever you withdraw money from an ATM, first of all keep in mind that the card slot of the ATM machine must be in the correct condition. If you feel that there has been a tampering in the ATM card slot, then try your best not to use this ATM.

For your information, let you know that hackers who fraud through the ATM machine steal the data of any user's card from the card slot in the ATM machine. Hackers place a device in the card slot of an ATM machine, with the help of which the hackers scan the complete information of the user's card and create another card like that card. Hackers steal the data of the card from Bluetooth, or any other similar device after hacking the users’ card information.

As you know, PIN number is required to withdraw money from ATM through debit or credit card. Hackers track this PIN number in the ATM room with the camera, or any of their devices. We recommend you that whenever using the PIN number while using the ATM; somehow hide it while entering your PIN number in the ATM machine. Due to this, your pin number will not be recorded in any kind of camera.

While withdrawing money from the ATM, make sure that there should be green light in the card slot. If there is green light in the card slot, then it means that the ATM is safe. On the other hand, if there is no light in the card slot, or if there is red light then do not use this ATM.

Whenever you withdraw money from an ATM, keep in mind that there should be no person other than you besides the ATM machine. If someone else is standing near the ATM machine while withdrawing money, then politely urge him to go away by citing rules. If you are facing difficulty in using an ATM machine, then do not seek help from any unfamiliar person in this situation. If you take care of these precautions; and you do not make any mistake, then you can avoid ATM fraud.
