Are You With It?
Are you planning international
travel this summer? Please give us
a call and let us know. Part of our
service to you includes tracking
your transactions and noting
suspicious activity. If your credit
card is used for a spending spree
across Europe, we need to know if
it’s really you having a wonderful
time abroad, or if someone has your
card. This is even a good idea if
you’re just going out of state. Let
us know, and we will take
note of your travel plans
so your card will always
be available for

Keep Your Debit Card
Safe While You Shop
Your debit card is a great convenience; it can be used in most places just like a credit
card, and you can use it to withdraw money at an ATM. But like any tool you use, you
must take care to make sure it’s used safely.
Here are a few steps you can take to avoid fraud
when using your debit card.

that gives you extra security when shopping

registration can prevent someone else from
using your card to shop online if your card is
lost or stolen. Visit the debit card page of our
website and click on “Protect Your Card — MC
SecureCode.” Registration is quick and easy.
