/> How To Prevent The ATM From ‘Swallowing’ Your Card | Welcome to praizeblog

Here are some ways to protect the ATM from swallowing your card:

*. Avoid suspicious ATMs :Some ATMs may not have been properly serviced and may be faulty.
If you see some signs that it looks unkempt or abandoned, avoid inserting your card in such
machines. Always read instructions on the ATM because most times, there are usually some notes on the machine to inform you that the
ATM is faulty and that you should use another one. Some ATMs may also have been tampered with by criminals to steal users’ identities. Don’t be too much in a hurry to try your luck with such ATMs. Look for another ATM to be on a safe

* .Multiple entries of wrong password :Be careful

when typing your password on the ATM because
when you make multiple attempts with the wrong password, the ATM may suspect that you stole
the card and withhold it to protect the account holder’s fund.

*. Expired card :

An expired card will not bring out
any money from the ATM. If you are trying to withdraw with such a card, the machine can swallow it.

*. Blocked card :

If you have reported to the bank
to block your card because it is lost, but failed to ask your bank to un-block it after you found it,
the ATM may swallow the card if you attempt to use it to withdraw money.

*. Low balance :

If you have a low balance in your
account and you are still attempting to withdraw money, the ATM can swallow your card.

*. Remove your card immediately after transaction :

When the ATM gives you a message
to remove your card and you fail to remove it on time, it may swallow it thinking that you have
forgotten it or that it is now an abandoned card.

*. Damaged card :

If your card is damaged, broken
or the magnetic strip has been affected, the ATM will not be able to read the card but will have to seize it.

*. Stopped card :

If the card has been reported as
missing, or the bank has placed a stop order on it, the ATM can seize it if you make an attempt to use it to withdraw money.

*. Wrongly inserting your card :

You need to follow the arrow sign on your debit card and insert it
into the ATM correctly. If you insert your card wrongly, the ATM may swallow it instead of
returning it back to you.

* .Wrong card :

Some ATMs do not recognise some
card providers. This happens a lot when you travel abroad. If you use your card on such
ATMs, they can swallow it.
