THE PSNI has warned the publc to protect their PIN numbers at ATM machines because of criminal scams.
A spokesperson said: “Sophisticated thieves are hiding card readers and cameras inside bank machines in Northern Ireland to capture your details to steal your money,
“Protect yourself – without the PIN they are defeated – cover the number pad completely with your hand as you enter your PIN.
“On the same note a hoax is circulating that if you feel threatened and put your PIN in reverse the Police are automatically called.
“Sadly this is incorrect.”
