Suspicious Transactions

If fraud is suspected on a debit card transaction, you will receive a call from a TRANSFUND / ELAN Fraud Prevention Analyst on the Bank's behalf to verify the transaction(s) are yours.  The number shown on your Caller ID will be 612-492-8369.  If you do not answer the call they will leave a message and a toll free number (1-866-842-5208).  It's important to call them back as your debit card may have been blocked due to susupected fraud. If your card has been blocked due to suspicious transactions, the analyst will be able to review the transactions with you. If you are able to identify the transactions, they will unblock your card.  For this reason, it is very important to keep your mobile and home phone numbers current with the Bank as these are the numbers that will be used to call you. The Fraud Prevention Analyst will not be able to help you with any type of limit increase.

Use a Personal Identification Number (PIN)!

Credit or Debit? It’s a familiar question from the store clerk when you pull out a plastic card to make a purchase. Either way you use your ATM/Debit VISA Card, the money comes directly out of your checking account. Here’s why you should choose a PIN for your transaction:

  • The Bank is requiring the use of a PIN at all Wal-Mart and WM Supercenters, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, and Tractor Supply for any transactions due to an increase in debit card fraud using the signature based (or credit) transactions. 
  • PIN only transactions if over $300.00 at Ross or Macy's
  • PIN only transactions for California, China, and New York
  • All transactions are blocked for Spain
  • All transactions equal to or greater than $150.00 at any store will require a PIN.
  • If the merchant does not accept pinned transactions hit the cancel button and it will give you the option of credit if it's not equal to or greater than $150.00.
  • Unauthorized transactions should always be reported immediately.
