How do I sign up for fraud text alerts?

It’s simple! If we have your current mobile number on file and we detect suspicious activity on your debit card, you’ll receive a text message. If you reply “STOP,” you’ll no longer receive text messages and will then be notified of fraud alerts via phone calls, emails or a letter in the mail.

If you’re interested in receiving fraud alerts via text message, please make sure that we have your current mobile number on file. To update your mobile number, simply log in to online banking and go to “Profile Updates” under “Profile/Settings,” give us a call at 800-423-3344 or stop by your nearest location to ask to update your contact information.
