Hi from Steven.

What disturbs me is these banks make billions but still can't find ways of stopping this from happening.

I will be careful what I say here, but one has to at least consider the unlikely possibility that some of this is well "inside knowledge" not that I am openly accusing the banks here.

Steven.

Don't use  any a t m's at all if I can avoid it.

One tip Ben forgot to mention is if you are shopping online even with
a
debit card using your own money, insure you log off the website,
return
to the home page of your browser, and only then, close the browser or

continue browsing.

From Ben Matthews.

You may have recently heard and or read that the Commonwealth Bank
has
recently discovered what are commonly called skimming devices  on 3
automatic teller machines.

To give you the idea of how these devices are meant to work,
basically
the idea is criminals put a device in and or on an automatic teller

machine with a camera which records all  transactions, which then
transmits all the data of the transactions  to mobile phones and or
other equipment.

The criminals record your transactions and yes this also includes
your
pin and then they use this data to grab whatever cash remains  in
your
accounts.

This practice is becoming more and more common so here are a few
tips
to avoid you becoming the next victim.

1.  Withdraw only using eftpos, most retail stores will give you
cash
as will post offices.

2.  Do not withdraw cash on credit using an automatic teller
machine,
in other words, don't borrow cash on your credit card  using an
automatic teller machine to complete the transaction.

3.  If you really have to use an automatic teller machine, try
finding
a branch of your bank where they have a machine inside the  actual
bank
branch and or even better just go to the teller and do  the
transaction.

4.  If you are going to use a personal pin of your own choosing
rather
than the bank issued pin, avoid using your date of birth and or any

number on any form of any of your personal identification, tip, use

your dogs registration tag number or something obscure  like the
year
you got the first card or something like this.

5.  If you suspect money is going out of your account without your
authorisation, immediately make as many forms of contact with your
bank as possible, note, you should also inform the banking
ombudsman
and the police as well.
