Debit Card Safety Tips - Safeguard Yourself

Keep your card information from falling into the wrong hands by following these ten precautions: 

  1. Sign Immediately - As soon as your card arrives in the mail, sign the back and keep duplicate cards in a safe place. 
  2. Memorize Your PIN - Do not write your personal identification number (PIN) down and carry it with you. Leave the number at home.
  3. Thank You For Asking - Thank merchants for asking to see your identification or verifying your signature when making purchases with your check card. This verification process is intended to protect your card from fraudulent purchases. When using your card for purchases, make sure the merchant returns your card to you. 
  4. Take Your Receipt and Save It - Always ask for your check card receipts when making purchases and tear up any carbon copies. Reconcile your receipts against your account statement to verify all transactions. Report any unauthorized transactions immediately. Once you have reconciled the statement, shred the receipts. 
  5. Verify Statements - Be sure to review your account statements carefully to assure the amounts charged are what you authorized. Watch for duplications, especially if you use your check card for electronic or phone purchases. 
  6. Keep It Private - Store your statements in a safe place. 
  7. Out of Sight - Never leave your purse or wallet unattended and always keep your check cards out of sight. 
  8. Lender's Regret - Never lend your check cards to anyone. Your check card is your responsibility. Be sure you keep track of where all your cards are located. 
  9. Keep A List of Contacts - Write down your account numbers and telephone numbers to contact if your cards should be lost or stolen. 
  10. Report Immediately - If cards are lost or stolen, report it immediately to minimize loss and liability.
