Banking Security

At Bankers Trust, security is a top priority. We are committed to providing information and resources to help you secure your mobile and online banking devices. This page is dedicated to sharing tips you can use to safeguard against mobile banking and online banking fraud.

​​​ATM Skimming

Here are a few proactive steps you can take to protect yourself from ATM skimmers.
  • Before using an ATM, look for anything unusual or suspicious that might indicate tampering. If the ATM appears to have attachments to the card slot or key pad, do not use it.
  • Wiggle each part of the machine before putting your card in, and never force your card into a card slot.
  • Shield the keypad with your hand when keying in your PIN.
  • If you believe the ATM is not working normally or has been tampered with, press the Cancel key, remove your card and report the matter to your financial institution immediately..
In addition to the above steps, please remember to check your online banking account regularly and report any unusual activity immediately by calling the toll-free number on the back of your card.  We appreciate your business and hope you’re enjoying a safe and fun-filled summer.
