4 Places To Never Use Your Debit Card

According to www.bankrate.com, criminals are installing card skimmers in more and more places and if it’s a debit card number they nab, they get your money instantly.

Bankrate suggests never using your debit card at:

Gas pumps

Online shopping

Free-standing ATMs that aren’t part of a bank

Restaurants where the waiter/waitress takes your card from you to run it through

If your debit card number is stolen it can take months for a fraud investigation to be completed.

Consumer Reports magazine recommends having your debit card tied to a small checking account and not your main one.
