The Financial Supervisory Service said Saturday that users of magnetic stripe (MS) cash cards and credits cards will not be allowed to draw out cash from ATMs, starting from Monday.

From January next year, card loans and credit purchases will also be limited for MS cards.

In an aim to reduce financial counterfeit crimes, financial authorities have been replacing conventional MS-type cards to integrated circuit (IC) cards. As of the end of last month, 99.6 percent of the MS cards had been replaced, according to officials.

Until March,  however, banks and ATM centers will be obligated to keep at least one ATM which accepts MS cards, as a temporary measure to minimize the users' inconvenience.
