How Fraud Alerts Work

As you use your card, our fraud monitoring software learns your tendencies. If transactions occur that raise red flags, we will send you a text, email or call the number we have on file to have you either confirm or report the transaction.

If the transaction is legitimate, a confirmation will allow you to continue using the card with no interruptions. If you tell us that the transaction is fraudulent, we will immediately block the card to prevent any other fraudulent charges from hitting your account. 

Our fraud alerts are quick and easy, and are always free* as a part of your cardholder benefits. All that we ask is that you keep your contact information up to date, so that we can reach you if we ever need to.

To ensure that you receive alerts when we see suspicious activity, please log in to eBranch or your CSE mobile app and update your phone and email information.

Update Contact Information

If you are contacted about potential fraud on your account, it's always recommended that you check your account to ensure there are not transactions that have posted to your account that are illegitimate. If you have transactions post to your account that are fraud, please contact the credit union to dispute those transactions.

Text Alert Samples

To help you understand what to expect, take a look at some sample text alerts. These are similar to what you would receive in the event you get a text or email to verify activity on your debit or credit card. As always, if you are uncomfortable with a message you receive, it's always a good idea to contact us (or any sender) to verify that the message is legitimate.
