Your limit on your debit card is set to $250 per day with no more than 6 transactions per day. You can request a higher or lower limit, but you will need to come into the bank and sign a form to authorize it.The 6 transactions per day can not be increased.
- The bank can order you a new card if you feel that it has compromised or damaged, but remember we will charge a $15 replacement fee and it could take up to two weeks to receive a new card.
- If you should misplace your debit card we can put a temporary block on your card rather then cancelling it.That will give you time to look for it, and you won't have to order a new one right away. If you have the Shazam Bolt$ app on your phone you can also put a temporary block on your card. Look at your app store for Shazam Bolt$ or go to: http://https://bolts.shazam.net/ShazamWebPortal/index.php
- Remember NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PIN NUMBER! The exception to this is when you are enrolling for the Shazam Bolt$ notifications app. This is to verify that you are the owner of the card that you are enrolling.
- Beware of emails with official-looking logos that look like legitimate receipts from companies like iTunes. The thieves' goal is to get you to dispute the charge. To do so, you are asked to provide the personal information they need to access your account and/or steal your identity. If you suspect an email or website is fraudulent, report the information to the real company, using a phone number or email address from a reliable source (your monthly statement etc.)
'Do-jacking' website fraud
Incidents of do-jacking fraud are on the rise and there is no easy fix. Do jacking is short for "Domain jacking". Criminals register a domain with similar spelling in hopes to catch someone trying to log onto a banking site or credit card website, with similar spelling.
Domain Jacking uses slightly different versions of the domain , hoping for you to make a typo while trying to get to the site. For example, instead of "bank," they might register a domain "bnak" hoping to snag someone who simply typed the letters wrong. Other common methods are registering domains using .cm or .co instead of .com. For example, "myonlinebank.co" instead of "myonlinebank.com."
Once your on the fake site and try to login with your info you will probably get an error of some sort that will pop up. More common is the use of some notice about outdated security on the customer's computer, or the need to download Adobe Flash. Once the customer clicks "agree" to the "required update", adware or financial malware downloads on the computer.
So customers BE WARE, a simple typo could infect your computer and wipe out your bank accounts!
