ATMs will give you cash in a flash, but not all of them are created equal. If you're grabbing a cheap cup of coffee at a convenience store and notice the shady looking ATM in the corner, think twice before inserting your debit card. Sometimes we're really in a crunch and aren't able to cruise down the street and use a bank's machine, but don't get in to the habit of getting convenience cash.
Experts say that it's easier for hackers to tamper with these machines and steal your PIN. The videotaping and security measures at banks make them less susceptible to thieves, while convenience ATMs are maintained by a third party.
