Theft robbery

How to avoid getting robbed at the ATM's this December here is a great tip for you

ATM scams can involve stealing your debit card number or personal identification number. Popular scams that thieves use include using a counterfeit device for access to the door to the ATM and using a false facade on the front of the machine. So to avoid this kind of thing there are things you can do that can help you.

December time is a time where scammers are working full time, as we know that people will be getting their bonus, same will be withdrawing their savings after saving for the whole year. And we're talking about real money thousands. People have been robbed a lot of money during this time, many cases have been reported where you find someone who has been robbed at the ATMs during December time. Most robbers, scammers, and thieves don't go anywhere else at most but they prefer places like ATMs.

So to avoid this unnecessary thing from happening to you, a lady took to her social media account to share how you can save yourself from scammers and robbers trying to rob you of your money. Kebetswe wrote instead of using ATM's transfer the money to yourself then cardless option to withdraw your cash. This is one of the best ways to be safe.

It looks like people had forgotten about thieves that are scamming people their money mostly during this time, after reading this it was a wake-up call to people that they needed to see this as it will help them a lot. I guess some people didn't know you can do something like this to be safe from robbers. As people, we will do everything to make sure we don't become victims, because there's nothing painful like having a black Christmas after working so hard for your money for the whole year for it to be taken in just a day, by someone who doesn't know how you got that money.

Some people in the comments section also shared their advice on how you can avoid being robbed at the ATM's see comments below.

Such advice is not to be avoided as it will be of great use in the future. During this December a lot of things might happen as people are hungry as I've seen what happened with the looting and a lot more. So people would do anything just to get money.

Hopefully, this will help someone out there.
