  • Your telephone banking password is the key to accessing your account information. Do not write down your password anywhere and do not store your password in your computer. Do not use predictable passwords such as your name, date of birth, phone number, or other personal information.
  • Telephone passwords must be entered on the telephone. Telephone banking personnel do not request your passwords verbally. Never give out your password information whether asked verbally or in writing to do so. End the call and notify your bank immediately.
  • When using public telephones, dial the number yourself. Be sure to dial the right number.
  • Make sure the transaction passwords you dial are not stored in the telephone's memory.
  • Make sure you are not watched or listened to by suspicious people around you while making phone calls. Speak in a tone of voice only audible to banking personnel.
  • Innocent-looking, yet ill-intentioned people may offer you help by giving out their own telephone numbers. These types of people may pretend to be banking personnel and attempt to get your personal information like your password, date of birth, mother's maiden name, among other types of information. They may even be able to store your password in their high-tech mobile phones or even save a voice record of the call.
  • Do not write down your passwords on your ATM cards or carry the passwords on you. Do not use predictable passwords such as your name, date of birth, phone number, or other personal information. Do not share your passwords with anyone, not even with banking personnel.
  • If there is anything unusual about the ATM that causes suspicion such as an unusual device installed, do not perform any transaction and notify your bank immediately.
  • Pay attention to your surroundings while performing ATM transactions. Make sure there are no suspicious people around you.
  • Prevent anyone from seeing your password. Hide your password in your hand. If you see someone looking at your password, do not perform any transaction.
  • Stand close to the ATM to withdraw cash.
  • Leave the ATM after you secure your money.
  • Be cautious of people who want to help you if your card is stuck or blocked. Innocent-looking, yet ill-intentioned people may tell you that your card will be cancelled if you enter your password again. They may even offer to let you use their mobile phones so that you can notify the bank to obtain your password. Do not ask unsuspecting people for help. Notify your bank immediately with your mobile phone or with the closest and most secure telephone.
