Is your local ATM safe?

Is your local ATM safe?

Is your ATM at risk? By now, I'm sure you are all aware that Microsoft will no longer offer security support to Windows XP.  Unfortunately, ATMs use that software and as of tomorrow time is running out.  

 

The larger banks have purchased necessary extensions but what about the smaller regional banks or CU? Definitely worth asking before you use your debit card for that $20.

Thanks Lexie I was unaware of this great info 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
