Fraud Alert Update - In order to prevent further fraud during this current outbreak, PIN numbers are required with debit card purchases at discount stores, pharmacies, and grocery stores.

Your debit cards are fully functional, and can be used as either credit or debit at other establishments, but during specific fraud outbreaks, a PIN number will be required for transactions at these types of locations. If you experience a problem at a retailer, please have them be sure that they are running your debit card for a PIN-based transaction. In some cases, the retailer or store may attempt to process the payment incorrectly. Please be sure you know your PIN number, but do not write it on your card. Thank you for helping us stop fraud, and remember that we protect you from fraud by taking all losses when fraud occurs. Neither the retailer nor you, our customer, are responsible for losses associated with this criminal act.
