If you’re traveling abroad, we suggest that you take a few steps to protect yourself from any fraudulent activity that may occur. If your BV Debit Card PIN was used while traveling abroad, we recommend that you change your PIN upon returning. As always, you can protect yourself further by reviewing your monthly checking account statements and monitoring your account with Online Banking.
If you notice any suspicious activity on your account, please notify us as soon as possible. We take the security of your account very seriously. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Electronics Department at (618) 826-2331.
Shazam R.A.D.A.R. is a state of the art neural network technology that helps to identify and reduce fraud by detecting potentially fraudulent debit card transactions. Transactions are scored based on transaction data and cardholder profile factors. The higher the transaction score, the greater the likelihood that the transaction is fraudulent. If suspicious activity is detected on your card, a Shazam Fraud Analyst, or a bank representative, will attempt to contact the cardholder to verify the activity. If the transaction is verified as fraud by the cardholder, a block can be placed on the card immediately to decline any further fraudulent transactions attempted with the card. If an attempt to contact the cardholder is unsuccessful and the card is blocked due to suspected fraudulent activity, the cardholder can make an inquiry by contacting the bank or by calling Shazam’s Fraud Operations Department at 866-508-2693.
A data compromise is an organized theft of check card information. When this happens, it’s primarily because of a data breach on the part of a merchant third-party processor, computer theft, stolen storage tapes or company insiders working for a merchant or a merchant’s contractor.
We understand that learning that your account information has been compromised can be an alarming experience. Click here for FAQ’s and what to expect when a data compromise occurs.
