Fraud Management Information/Resources
Fraud Management for Debit Cards
Protecting you from unauthorized use of your debit card is a top priority at Community State Bank. To that end, we are partnering with Fiserv, our debit card administrator, to implement a fraud monitoring system, called Debit Card Fraud Management. This service will help monitor your bank account for fraudulent debit card activity. If suspicious activity is detected on the account associated with your debit card (i.e. out-of-state purchases or uncharacteristically high charges), you will be contacted by Community State Bank or by a Fiserv fraud specialist, calling on our behalf, to verify those transactions.
We would like to ensure that we can reach you promptly if fraudulent activity is suspected. If at any time your contact information changes, please notify your personal banker, teller or Customer Care at 515-331-3100. As always, we keep your personal information strictly confidential. Please remember that we will NOT ask for your debit card number or personal identification number (PIN) to verify your identity. Remember to use caution when providing your debit card information, and contact us immediately if you suspect your debit card has been stolen or compromised.
Fraudulent Check Scam
If you think you may have become victimized by a fraudulent check scam, contact the following agencies:
- Contact the bank who issued the check directly to report receipt of the check and to verify authenticity. Do not use the telephone number provided on the check – this number is probably not associated with the bank, but rather with the scam artist. To locate a bank’s mailing address, you can check the FDIC’s Web site at: http://www.fdic.gov/
- Federal Trade Commission (FTC): by telephone at 1-877-FTC-HELP or file an electronic complaint via their Internet site at http://www.ftc.gov
- The Iowa Attorney General at: http://www.state.ia.us/government/ag/index.html
- For Internet Scams - Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Internet Fraud Complaint Center: http://www.ic3.gov
- Mail-based scams-U.S. Postal Inspector Service at http://www.usps.com
You might call them by different names but these scam artists have one thing in common: they pretend to be someone they are not and tell you a bogus story to con you into wiring them money.
