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.
