Error when calling customer service

Many such incidents have come out in which people complain about people’s cards getting stuck in ATMs. Many times the card gets stuck in the machine and panicked we call the customer service number written there, but here you need to be very careful.

Your card is not stuck in this machine but these fraudsters have stuck the card. They install another machine in the card-carrying port and then paste their number as a customer service number. Before calling, be sure to check how the number is spelled. If the number is written and pasted on a plain piece of paper, don’t call it.

Check the machine

Before withdrawing money from the ATM as soon as you enter the ATM, all you need to do is to check it properly. Look around and see if there are any hidden cameras. You should also check the ATM card slot. Many times crooks install card reader chips around card slots, which can steal ATM card data and PIN code information. It is necessary to remember that there is nothing new in the machine.

Be careful while entering the PIN

If your ATM PIN is not available to criminals, it becomes difficult to access your account. In such a situation ATM PIN should be used very carefully. Keep in mind that you are going to withdraw money inside the ATM and no one else should be there.

If someone else is present, let them go out or enter by hiding the pin. When entering the PIN, cover the ATM keyboard with your hand and stand as close to the machine as possible. So that no one can see your pin.

Do not give ATM PIN and card to anyone

Many times we give our ATM card and PIN to our friends or relatives to withdraw money in a hurry or an emergency. Such a mistake should be avoided. Now such cases are also starting to come out in which close people are involved in fraud. If you have to give an ATM card to someone, change the PIN of the card immediately and remember the transaction.

Don’t take help from anyone at the ATM

Taking help from a stranger at an ATM can be harmful. Even if it takes a little longer to withdraw money, don’t let anyone come near the ATM and even if you forget your card and PIN, don’t ask others for help.
