ATM Thefts

by on Apr.02, 2009, under E-Banking, life

Till now everyone of us must have been the viewer of two unleashed videos of recent ATM Theft. I really felt so sad about the poor ones who actually got robbed this way. Specially the guy who literally fell on the floor due to the feeling of sheer helplessness.

It is fact that the number of transactions is increasing every day and such incidents can’t really stop people doing Transactions on the ATM. However the scary feeling would still be on top the of their head while using an ATM even if they just had to do a Account Balance Inquiry =D

Any how, being (proudly saying) the part of team who is literally running 80% of the E-Banking of Pakistan, I got the chance to visit a few ATM’s of different Banks. I would like to share some of the precautionary measures that should be kept in mind to save ourselves from incidents like what we have seen in the videos.

- Choose an ATM that is surrounded by acceptable crowd.
- Avoid doing transaction in late timings i.e. after 8
- If ATM is situated inside the room, it is permitted to lock that room from inside while doing the transaction. (This lock is usually at the top of glass door). So lock it when you know it can be dangerous.
- Avoid having high cash withdrawal limit per day (as it may cause you a bigger loss)
- Use your ATM/Debit Card as your wallet and avoid keeping huge amounts in your Account that is linked with your Card
- Never write your PIN Code any where (neither on your ATM Card nor on any Paper that resides in your wallet)
- And in the last in case your Card is lost/snatched call the Bank Call Centre to which that card belong, and BLOCK it right away.

That’s all I could add in your information. May Allah protect us from all such robbers and give the robbers ‘hidayat’ about this act, and last of all give courage and strength to our Police Officers to protect the citizens from these horrible incidents.
