The Bankers Association of Trinidad and Tobago (BATT) wishes to draw the public’s attention to the fact that messages have been circulating on social media purporting to indicate ways in which to avoid your ATM PIN being compromised by putting it in backwards.

BATT wishes to educate the public that this is FALSE information.

If this is to be implemented, there will be several challenges, including the police response time to the alert, which will be a major concern, incidents of false alarms and the cost of implementation and maintenance.

However, customers can protect themselves at ATMs by being mindful of their surroundings and observing for suspicious looking individuals. Customers are also advised to use ATMs in high-traffic locations such as supermarkets, gas stations and banks, preferably during daylight hours. If there is a need to use ATMs at night, ensure that the surrounding area is well-lit. Always shield your PIN when conducting ATM transactions. If in doubt, use another ATM.
