How it Works
- Alerts are sent by text message to your mobile device.
- If a transaction(s) appears suspicious we will send you a text message, usually within minutes1, asking if the transaction(s) is fraudulent and we may place a block on your card.
- Simply reply "Yes" or "No" letting us know if the transaction(s) is fraudulent.
- If you reply "Yes", to confirm fraud, a block will be placed on your card if it has not already been done. Contact Bankcard Customer Service immediately at (800) 509-0806. If you reply "No", we will remove any block that may have been placed and you may continue using your credit or debit card.
