Debit Card Fraud Alerts

More ways First Financial puts YOU FIRST

With our new fraud alerts, you will always be the first to know!  We are excited to introduce our enhanced fraud notification system, protecting your money 24/7. This new tool automatically notifies you when fraud is suspected-- no need to enroll!

How First Financial Protects You

With real-time fraud alerts, keeping your debit card safe is as easy as sending a text. We use sophisticated tools to monitor your debit card and detect any unusual or suspicious activity. As a proactive security measure, our fraud detection alert system will reach out to you directly to confirm transactions. 

How the Fraud Notification System Works

Whenever a potentially fraudulent transaction occurs, our system will automatically text the phone number listed on your accounts, as well as send an email. If the number listed on your account is not associated with a mobile phone, you will receive an automated phone call and email. From any of these channels, you can quickly confirm or deny transactions. 

SMS Alerts

To use this feature to the fullest, make sure the mobile phone number listed on your account is up-to-date! SMS alerts are the simplest and fastest way to monitor your account! There are three different ways to respond to a text alert: 

  1. If you receive a text and the transaction is not fraudulent, simply reply to the text message "YES" and the system will thank you for confirming. 
  2. If the transaction is fraudulent, please reply "NO." From there, you can contact our Customer Service Team at 855-660-5862. 
  3. If the transaction is blocked and not fraudulent, reply "YES" and try the transaction again. If the transaction is blocked and it was fraudulent, contact our Customer Service Team at 855-660-5862.
