Debit Card Alerts
When it comes to money these days, it pays to stay alert! Debit Card Alerts can act as an early-warning system of possible fraudulent transactions.
When you sign up for Debit Card Text Alerts, you will be notified within moments of a transaction taking place making it easy to monitor your accounts. If fraudulent activity ever takes place, you can act quickly to protect yourself and minimize potential fraud.
Types of Text Alerts:
Funds removed: A text alert is sent when a debit transaction is processed using your debit card such as an ATM withdrawal or debit card purchase.
Signature transactions: A text alert is sent when you do not use your PIN for a transaction using your debit card. This occurs when you select the "Credit" option on the terminal or sign a receipt.
Card status change: A text alert will be triggered if the card status is changed such as activation, temporary suspension, not activated or closed.
Suspected fraud: If activity on your card suggests possible fraud a text alert will be sent to you.
International transaction: an alert will be triggered when a debit transaction is initiated from somewhere other than the United States.
You may choose to have text alerts by text message or email. With text messaging, standard wireless text charges may apply.
