Abstract: The main objective of this system is to develop a system that will increase the ATM security. However, despite the numerous advantages of ATM system, ATM fraud has recently become more widespread. In this paper, we provide an overview of the possible fraudulent activities that may be perpetrated against ATMs and investigates recommended approaches to prevent these types of frauds.. The ATM will service one customer at a time. A customer will be required to enter a login id and validate his finger print and both will be sent to the bank for validation as part of each transaction. This makes the developed ATM software more secure as compared to the software that authenticates the user merely by using a PIN or password.
