Precautionary measures to take when using ATMs overseas

Be observant - If something about the ATM does not seem right to you, cancel your transaction immediately. Confirm with the Bank as soon as possible that the transaction has been cancelled.

Safety first - Use ATMs in well-lit and safe locations. If you notice anyone suspicious around you, use an ATM in a different location.

Keep your PIN confidential - Never share your PIN number with anyone. Cover the hand used to key in your PIN with your other hand. We also encourage you to change the PIN for all your cards regularly.

Keep tabs – Monitor your account activities and report any fraudulent or suspicious withdrawals immediately.

Top up your foreign currency accounts anytime

Simply tap on Mighty FX via UOB TMRW and choose the currency and amount you wish to convert to.
