Out shopping

Look after your bank cards at all times. Try not to let your card out of your sight when making a purchase. Ensure that you’re the only person who knows your PIN.

  • When entering your PIN, use your hand and body to shield the number from prying eyes or hidden cameras.
  • Don’t write your PIN number down. If you wish, you can change it to something more memorable at a cash machine (ATM) or by contacting your bank.
  • Check receipts against statements carefully. Contact your card company immediately if you find an unfamiliar transaction.
  • Using the internet to purchase goods or services saves time and effort. There are, however, risks associated with online shopping.
  • Visit Get Safe Online for up-to-date expert advice about buying, selling and banking online.
