Customize Your Alerts
We've identified the six types of debit card transactions that are the most likely targets for potential fraud. You can sign up for one or all.
- Declined Transactions
With a declined transaction alert, you will know when your debit card is being used to attempt to make a purchase but is declined.
- Online Purchases
Alerts you when your debit card is used to make an online, phone or mail purchase. Online, phone and mail purchases only require your card information and not the physical card itself, so cards are more susceptible to fraudulent activity than purchases that require a physical card to be swiped.
- Transactions outside the U.S.
Alerts you when a transaction occurs at a merchant based outside the U.S., as it is common for stolen card numbers to be used at foreign merchants.
- Pay-at-the-pump transactions
Alerts you when your debit card is used to make a gas purchase at the pump. Pay-at-the-pump purchases are often the first transaction someone who has just stolen a card makes to test the card to find out if it is still active.
- Purchases over a specific amount
Alerts you when a purchase exceeds the dollar amount you specify. To help you set your dollar threshold amount, we'll show you the purchase history of transactions made with your debit card.
- ATM Withdrawals
Alerts you when an ATM withdrawal exceeds the dollar amount you specify for this alert.
