Debit Card Fraud

Let’s face it, very few people actually take the time to balance a checkbook anymore. With online banking and eStatements, it’s easy to check to make sure you have enough in your account to cover your purchase without really taking the time to look at each withdrawal. You probably don’t take stock in what’s happening with your account until there’s a noticeable problem. Debit card fraud thrives in these situations, especially when the withdrawals are small amounts over time. Debit card fraud occurs when someone gains access to your account information to make unauthorized purchases.

Often, the money goes missing long before you notice. So, how do you protect yourself from hackers and criminals? Wouldn’t it be nice if you had your own personal assistant whose only job was to notify you in real-time alerts? Well, with Falcon National Bank’s Debit Card Controls, now you do.
