Alerts for your Debit Card

03/15/2013

Debit cards have grown in popularity over the years and are now used more often than cash, credit cards and checks. But as usage goes up, so does the number of cases of debit card fraud.

With credit cards, if you spot fraudulent charges on your bill, you can simply decline the charges and not pay. But debit cards draw money directly from your checking account; so getting your money back after cases of fraud can take much longer.

And while there’s no fool proof way to eliminate debit card fraud, FineMark does offer one way to possibly limit the risk. It’s with our Consumer Alerts for Debit Cards. Convenient e-mail or text message alerts provide helpful account information, and they’re also a great way to keep tabs on your account balance. The service is free and you can customize the debit card alerts you want to receive.

If you want to keep on top of your account transactions - give us a call at 239-461-5900 to have alerts set up on your Debit Card account.
