Unauthorized Debit Card Activity

Debit card fraud is very prevalent today and, to protect your account, we actively monitor our clients' debit card transactions to try to detect potential fraudulent activity. If we suspect something is out of the ordinary, we may call you to verify the legitimacy of the transactions. Your participation in responding to our call is critical in preventing risk and avoiding restrictions that could be placed on your card while we investigate suspicious or unusual transactions.  

During normal banking hours, American Community Bank & Trust may contact you to review any transactions that seem out of the ordinary. We will call the primary phone number we have on file. Please note it is very important that we have your primary phone number (both cell and hard lines) on file. Please help us by ensuring we have accurate and current contact information.

In some instances, and after normal banking hours, the Fraud Detection Center will contact you to review any transactions that seem out of the ordinary.

  1. To verify your identity, the automated system will ask you to enter your zip code.
  2. You will be asked to verify one or more recent transactions. If fraud is confirmed or suspected, you will be transferred to a representative. If the transactions are legitimate, no further action will be required.

If you are not available to answer the call, a message will be left and a call-back phone number will be provided. If the call was originated by the Fraud Detection Center, you will be given an authentication number to retrieve your alert and you will be asked to approve the transaction or identify it as fraudulent.
