What you need to know...

You may not know it, but you have round-the-clock protection against the increasingly savvy perpetrators of debit card fraud.  That's because cards we issue are protected by FraudWatch Plus.  

With this protection, trained analysts are watching for suspicious activity on your behalf 24/7, 365 days a year.  When a transaction is not consistent with your usual card activity, you will get a call from "Fraud Prevention Services" to verify the authenticity of the transaction. 

Fraud is serious business, and can hit anytime.  That is why we are always on guard to detect and prevent fraud from happening to you.
