New Debit Card Fraud Prevention Service
In our continuing efforts to keep your accounts secure, we’ve improved our alert system for potential debit card fraud. Beginning AUGUST 11, 2016 you will begin receiving EMAIL MESSAGES, text messages then phone calls for potential fraud.
All of our debit cardholders are automatically enrolled in the service, so there is no need to sign up.
Here’s how it works when potential fraud is detected:
1. You will receive an automatic email notification, with the option to respond and confirm fraud or no fraud.
2. One minute after the email, you will receive a text alert, from 32874*, with the option to reply with “YES” if the transaction is valid or “NO” if the transactions are fraud. ***Data rates may apply
3. If there is no response received from you 20 minutes after the text alert, you will receive automatic phone calls from 1-800-417-4592* to confirm or deny fraud. If fraud is confirmed or if there is a failure to authenticate your identity, you will be connected to a fraud analyst.
If you do not respond to notifications, your card may be blocked until you respond to the messages or contact the Fraud Center.
Remember – our messages will never ask for your PIN or account number.
*The phone number for our Fraud Center has changed to 1-800-417-4592. If you add this number to your phone contacts and label it “Fraud Center,” it will display whenever you get a call from this number. You can also add the short code of 32874 to your contacts to know the text alert is from the fraud center.
Please contact us with any questions or updated contact information.
