CheckCard Safety Tips:

As with all financial transactions, please exercise discretion when using an ATM. For your own safety, be careful. The following suggestions may be helpful:

  • Record each transaction in your account record, but not while at the ATM.
  • Always save your receipts. Do not leave them at the ATM or merchant because they may contain important account information.
  • Compare your records with the account statements you receive.
  • Do not lend your CheckCard to anyone.
  • Do not leave your card at the ATM.
  • Protect your CheckCard as if it were cash.
  • Protect the secrecy of your Personal Identification Number (PIN).
    • Do not tell anyone your PIN.
    • Do not give anyone information regarding your CheckCard or provide your PIN over the telephone, by email, or to a website. An AuburnBank representative would NEVER call and ask you for this information.
    • Do not keep your PIN with your card. For example, do not keep a record of your PIN in your wallet or purse.

 If your CheckCard is lost or stolen, notify an AuburnBank Customer Service Representative immediately. If the Bank is closed, call VISA 24-hours a day at (800) VISA-911.
