Responsible Debit Card Behaviors

Responsible Debit Card Behaviors 

In today’s world, we are constantly seeing scams using others’ debit and credit cards, as well as using that knowledge to create identity theft.  As debit card users, we should take all necessary actions to prevent this from happening and protect our assets.

Things you can do to protect yourself

First and foremost, keep records of charges to your card. Keeping track of what you spend, where you spend, and what date the transaction occurred allows you to better check and monitor your monthly statements. Next, compare your records to bank records to make sure no other transactions occurred or that there were no double charges. Signing up for online banking allows you to access your card’s transaction history, current activity, pending transactions, and if you choose to do so, access to auto pay.
