What are fraud text alerts?

Fraud text alerts are a convenient way to receive detailed notifications in the event we detect suspicious activity on your Gate City Bank debit card. All you need to do is respond to the text message with a “YES” or “NO” to validate or not validate the transaction. (Responses are not case-sensitive.)

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.
