Top 10 Tips To Keep Your Money Safe This Festive Season

The festive season is once again upon us. Fun as it is, it is also rife with attempts to defraud you of your hard-earned money. Here’s how to protect your money 

The December holidays are synonymous with splurging and being carefree financially. Unfortunately, this time of the year also comes with a lot of headaches as criminals are on the lookout to rob you of your hard-earned money. Here are the top 10 tips to keep your money safe this festive season:

  •  Carefully read the instructions on the ATM screen before entering your PIN.
  • Never force your card into the ATM or use an ATM if it looks faulty or has been tampered with.
  • Do not enter your PIN if the ATM screen is unfamiliar to you; rather, cancel the transaction.
  • Never share or write down your ATM PIN, and never share it with anyone.
  • When transacting, stand close to the ATM and never allow anyone to distract you.
  • When entering your PIN, cover the ATM keypad with your hand as a precautionary measure.
  • Avoid handling cash in public and always secure your wallet and handbag before leaving the ATM.
  • Set a realistic daily limit on your cash withdrawals to protect yourself.
  • Be wary of strangers that may call you back to the ATM to complete a transaction.
  • FNB customers can always make safe and secure cardless cash withdrawals at FNB ATMs.
