It is often difficult to spot these devices, so a photo is attached in order that you can familiarise yourself with the sorts of devices which may be used.
There are steps you can take to help protect yourself:
• If you spot anything unusual about the cash machine, or if there are signs of tampering, don’t use it. Report it to the bank concerned immediately.
