Posted on July 17, 2023 at 8:00 AM by Kim Peck

Are you using the power of your credit or debit card to help protect yourself against fraud? By setting up text alerts or notifications, you'll know when your card is being used, how much is being spent, and even when it's time to pay your bill. In a world where crooks look for ways to access our accounts, alerts give us an early warning that something might be wrong, or needs immediate attention. These text or email alerts, can be controlled and customized via online banking, through your credit card issuers website, or with a mobile app. You can choose to get them via text, emails, or push notifications. These powerful safety features can alert you to card use, things like transaction amount, online or phone purchases, foreign purchases, fuel purchases and ATM withdrawals. Show your account balances, provide reminders about when a payment is due, or when it is received, and display available credit. Visit our website, or stop in, to ask about how alerts can help protect you from fraud, and keep you informed about your accounts. Now is the time to turn on the power of account alerts.
