Do not allow anyone to pressure you into buying something. Tricksters often use lies like "This is the last one left" or "There are other people who are interested" to force you to make a quick decision. If you aren't 100% sure of what you are buying or don't trust the person you are buying it from, rather walk away.

Scam Alert: When using an ATM always be alert. There have been cases where the ATM swallows your card and a well-dressed person standing near will offer to assist by looking after the machine while you're getting help. The person will then take your card when you are away. If your card is swallowed by the machine look for a number to call on the machine for assistance, and if they cannot assist with getting back your card, immediately call your bank and cancel your card.
