ATM/Debit Card Safety Tips

Fraud is an ever-growing problem. It is in your best interest to take precautions to protect yourself while doing transactions at home and at your place of business. As part of our ongoing efforts to serve all of your financial needs, here are several suggestions to help increase your personal safety and reduce the risk of fraud and identity theft.

Card and PIN Safety


Capturing card information, or "skimming," is on the rise at ATMs and gas stations. Never use an ATM or card swipe that looks like it has been tampered with, as indicated by loose or extra parts attached to the face of the machine. 

If your card is captured inside an ATM or other device, call Republic Bank immediately to report the incident. You may think your card was jammed by the device, but many times it is retrieved by a criminal who staged the capture and may use it immediately. In either case, you will require a replacement card.
