ATM fraudsters use a variety of methods to steal your card information and PIN, including skimming devices, Lebanese loops, and fake PIN pad overlays.

Card reader slot looks strange: A loose, blocked, or unusually wide or misaligned card reader slot may indicate the presence of a skimmer or Lebanese loop.

Keypad looks or feels different: A keypad that is thicker than usual, has a sponge-like consistency, or is otherwise out of place may be a sign of a fake PIN pad overlay.

ATM is in a poorly lit or isolated area: Thieves often target ATMs in dark or secluded locations where they are less likely to be seen.

ATM has been tampered with recently: Look for signs of tampering such as glue, tape, or wires around the ATM.

If you see any red flags, do not use the ATM and report it to the bank or police.

It is important to be aware of ATM fraud and to take steps to protect yourself.

If you are ever unsure about whether or not an ATM is safe to use, it is always best to err on the side of caution and use a different ATM.
