Debit Card Protection

Keep your cards safe and sound.

  • Don't disclose your personal identification number (PIN) to anyone.
  • Don't write your PIN number and never leave it out in the open or keep in your purse or wallet.
  • Don't give or lend your debit card to anyone.
  • Check your account statements often.
  • Cut up old cards before you throw them away.
  • Open your monthly statements promptly and compare them to your receipts.
  • Carry only the cards that you need.
  • If you are shopping online, shop on secure websites. One indicator about which websites are safe, and which are not, is the presence of a yellow padlock icon in the browser bar. Another indicator is ‘https’ in the web address.
  • Don’t make purchases in free Wi-Fi hotspots, such as a coffee shop, which can put your passwords and other information at risk.
  • Use your debit card only at established, well-lit ATMs with security cameras in place.
  • Connect your Debit/ATM card with the MobiMoney app and your card off if necessary to prevent fraud as well as receive instant transaction alerts 
  • Sign up for e-alerts in Online Banking to monitor your balances, transactions or fraudulent attempts to retrieve your personal information by using your Online Banking login
