Protect your card

Following some basic safety rules with your card can help keep you protected.

Keep you and your card protected

Follow some basic safety rules with your card
Your card
Carry your card with you, or keep in a safe place.
Your card shouldn't be taken out of your sight when making a purchase.
If you are not using your card anymore or it has expired, destroy it immediately by cutting it in half diagonally.
Your PIN
Do not select a PIN that is easily identified with you (e.g. your date of birth, your post code, part of your phone number).
Protect your PIN and password by not telling anyone (even if they say they're calling from Bendigo Bank).
Don’t write your PIN down anywhere unless you disguise it very carefully.
Notify us immediately if your card or PIN has been lost, stolen or compromised.
At an ATM or EFTPOS device make sure no one is watching your PIN; if you see anything suspicious, don't use it.
Your transactions
Make online or telephone purchases only with reputable and well-known companies.
Keep receipts from internet transactions, check them against your statement, and report discrepancies.
Keep us up to date with your contact details so we can contact you quickly about any suspicious transactions.
