What Type of Fraud or Scam Was It?

Where did the fraud happen? Here is some information VISIONBank will help you determine:

  • Amount of money
  • How did they contact you?
  • If it was a fraudelent check, how and why did you receive it?
  • Was any sensitive information shared, such as an account number, digital banking login credentials, social security number, debit card or credit card number?

Update Account Information

Depending what information was accessed, our customer service team will help you reset your digital banking login, shut down your debit card, order a new credit card, or even open a new account and switch over automatic payments.

File a Report

Our team will guide you on where to file a report. If it's a local scam, you will want to file a police report. We also encourage you to share it with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center, if applicable, to help educate others.
