Even though taking money out of a bank machine is just a normal part of everyday life for millions of people, it still puts you at risk.
To limit this risk, the police in several countries around the world have developed a series of tips with the aim of keeping you safe while taking out cash at an ATM.
The first of all, which is even announced on the ATM screen, is to cover the pin pad when entering your PIN.
Sometimes we can find small surveillance cameras that capture the PIN of customers or even elements that look like the card slot.
Although it may seem absurd, which it is not, police recommend not trusting unknown people.
In other cases, the most dangerous criminals carry out the robbery directly. So, if you ever see someone suspicious hanging around the ATM.
Another useful tip is to always take any printed receipts with you. You do not want to let a criminal know any personal information or how much money you have left in your account.
Police also recommend you do not to withdraw large amounts of money from your account. If you need it.
