Fraud Alerts

Stay "safe and sound"! Receive text alerts directly to your phone in the case of unusual debit card activity.

How it Works

If we have your current cell phone number on file, you'll now receive a text notifying you if we detect unusual activity on your debit card.

The text will contain details regarding the transaction that was flagged, including the last 4 digits of the card, dollar amount, and merchant name.

To confirm the transaction is legitimate, reply to the message with a Y and we will respond that you are safe to continue to use your debit card. To confirm the transaction is fraud, reply to the message with an N and we will secure your account and respond with instructions to contact your branch.

We will never request replies that contain account or personal information or requires you to click on a link.
