Fraud Education

The power of security.

Your safety and security are important. And that’s why we have a powerful fraud monitoring system in place to keep you and your accounts safe. It’s also important for you to have the knowledge and resources to keep your information secure.

How can you protect yourself from fraud?

Fraud happens when an untrustworthy individual or a criminal misrepresents the truth to obtain something of value, like money or your personal information. Fraud can also happen when your information is used without your consent.

It’s important to stop, think, and ask questions any time you are asked to share personal or financial information.

Remember, we and other legitimate companies will NEVER:

  • Call, text, or email and ask for your Online Banking username, password, or other account login information
  • Request your full credit/debit card number, 3-digit security code on the back of your card, PIN, or account number
  • Contact you and ask for your Social Security number
  • Ask for any multi-factor authentication codes for your accounts. Learn more about how you can use MFA to protect your accounts on our blog.

How do we help keep your accounts safe?

Our powerful fraud monitoring system checks for unusual activity on your account 24/7. You may receive a phone call (from 844.544.3265) or a text message alert (from 37268 or 20733) if we see a suspicious transaction on your account. It’s very important for you to reply to this communication right away. As a security measure, we may block any additional transactions on your card or account until we can contact you and verify the usual transactions.

It’s a good idea to regularly log in to Online, Mobile, or Text Banking to monitor your accounts. If you ever see a transaction on your account that you don’t recognize, call us at 888.267.7200. We’re here to help you.

The dispute process.

If you see a transaction on your account that you don’t recognize or if a transaction posted for an incorrect amount, you may need to file a dispute with us. A dispute is the formal process of investigating a transaction. You must report an unauthorized transaction to us in a timely manner, but no later than 60 days after we send a statement listing the disputed transaction(s). Here’s what the process looks like:

  • Contact us. Call 888.267.7200 from the phone number that’s associated with your account. Choose the option for either debit or credit card.
  • Share details. We’ll ask you questions about the transaction and order a new debit or credit card for you (if needed).
  • Record case number. Write down your dispute case number in case you have any additional questions and need to contact us again.
  • Receive paper copy. You’ll receive a paper copy of your dispute request in the mail within 10 business days.
    • This paperwork may include a form for you to sign. It’s very important to follow the instructions and mail back to the address provided as soon as possible.
  • Conclude investigation. You’ll receive another letter in the mail outlining the conclusion of the investigation (which can take up to 90 days).
