You know how when you visit the ATM lobby of a bank after hours, you have to swipe your card to get the door to open?
Well, you don’t have to use your ATM card. Any card with a magnetic strip on it will open the door. I usually pull out my Foodtown card.
There was an article today in the Herald about credit card scams. One scam mentioned involves a credit card swiper thing being put by the door of an ATM lobby, so that everyone who mistakes it for the real one and swipes their card ends up giving the ruthless criminals their credit card details.
So if that sort of thing concerns you, use your Foodtown, or Flybuys or AA card, etc.
