IBMSECU Now Offers Text Fraud Alerts

By: IBMSECU Marketing | Jul 12, 2018

The $1.09 billion IBM Southeast Employees’ Credit Union (IBMSECU) is proud to announce that members now can enjoy more security and peace of mind with the new text messaging fraud alerts available for IBMSECU Visa® debit and credit card holders.

With identity theft and merchant data breaches on the rise, IBMSECU is dedicated to protecting members’ financial security. Together with Visa, they use fraud detection technology to monitor members’ accounts for suspicious transactions.  If they suspect any unusual debit or credit card activity, they’ll send the member a text message to alert them within minutes. Members can quickly respond with a text message to validate the transaction or alert the credit union if the transaction was unauthorized. Fraud Protection through interactive text alerts will help stop card fraud by alerting a member as soon as suspicious activity is detected.

IBMSECU will still notify members with a telephone call if they do not get a response to the text message. Members should verify their contact information through Online or Mobile Banking by clicking on “Settings” and then selecting “My Account Profile.”

Michael Miller, President and CEO at IBMSECU stated, “We are proud to offer our members this free account security solution that will help protect them from fraud. We know our members want peace of mind and to feel safe from fraud. Security is so important and we want to provide them with free and fast banking options.”
