Click on this link for SURF Video: SURF ATM Network Beware of Skimmers
A significant amount of card fraud comes from skimmers on ATMs, gas pumps and retail store point-of-sale (POS) machines. A skimmer is a device that's attached to a card reader on an ATM or POS unit that collects your card information when you swipe your card. Skimmers are designed to fit over the actual card reader and blend into the unit. They can be difficult to spot.When you're using your cards, check out the card reader or POS unit BEFORE you swipe your card. Does it look different from the last time you used it? Is the color of the card reader consistent with the rest of the unit? Take a second and pull gently on the card reader. If it moves, then it may be a skimmer. You should also check the keypad. If the keypad doesn't seem to be secure, then it may be a skimmer.Check any ATMs you use for external cameras that may be attached to it. These cameras are used to record the PIN number you enter. Get in the habit of always covering the keypad when you enter your PIN at an ATM.If anything seems out of place or odd, trust your instincts and move to a different ATM or gas pump. And check the history on your accounts frequently and report anything you don't recognize to your financial institution immediately.We've put photos of the card readers and key pads at our ATM above so you can use them as a reference.Remember...you are the first defense against card fraud on your account.Click on the graphic for a complete listing of the
