5.       Be prepared to conduct your transaction when you approach the ATM.
a.       Have you card ready and know what transaction or transactions you want to conduct.
b.       Shield the screen and keypad with your body as you use the ATM to prevent others from seeing your PIN.

6.       Pay attention to activity around the ATM as you leave.
Secure any cash you withdraw before leaving the machine.
