VISIONBank works diligently to protect our clients and their accounts from fraud, but there are also many important steps that YOU can take to protect yourself.

Monitor Statements + Credit Reports

You should review your account statements at least once a month. Keep an eye out for suspicious transactions or unexpected credit inquiries.

Correct Contact Information

Make sure we have the correct contact information such as phone number, mailing address, and email address. If there is any suspicious activity on your account, we want to be able to reach you.

Opt-In to Transaction Alerts

Did you know we offer transaction alerts for your debit card? When you opt-in, you will receive an email notification every time you use your VISIONBank debit card.

Protect Your Information

Keep sensitive information, checks and documents locked up securely in your home or in one of our safe deposit boxes at any of our three locations.

Don't Click Unexpected Links + Attachments

Ask yourself was I expecting this email or text? Does this person typically contact me this way? Is this normal or out of the ordinary? Asking yourself these questions can protect you from sharing information or allowing them access to your phone or computer.
