You should be shredding all bank statements, receipts or anything that has your card details printed on. Also be wary of using public Wi-Fi networks to purchase stuff.

Keep all your bank statements for reference, but make sure they're secure. Do not delete them, you may need them! It's best to cover the keypad on an ATM machine while you enter your 4-digit PIN. I would also think that the banks include encryption technology on the card chip to make forgery harder, though this should not be an excuse.
