  • Debit and Credit Card Fraud Protection

    Debit and credit card fraud is on the rise in the U.S. and abroad, but we are committed to protecting your Tech CU Visa® Debit and Credit Cards

    Fraud Protection Services

    To ensure the security of your Tech CU Debit and Credit Cards, we use a software application that detects card fraud based on transaction risk:

    • Each transaction you complete with your Tech CU Debit or Credit Card is assigned a score on a risk-based scale.
    • If it is deemed to be a high-risk transaction, the Card Member Security team will attempt to contact you to determine if it is a legitimate transaction.
    • Depending on the severity of the score, we may put a temporary block on your account if you cannot be reached, securing the card against fraud.
    • Card Member Security monitors both signature-based and PIN-based transactions on Tech CU Debit and Credit Cards, 24/7.

    While the system used by Card Member Security is the latest in fraud management protection, you should still contact a Tech CU representative if you suspect that your Tech CU Debit or Credit Card may have been compromised.

    When Traveling

    • Call a Tech CU representative before you leave on a trip to let us know that you'll be traveling.
    • We will put a note on your account, which the Card Member Security team will review in conjunction with any transactions made with your Tech CU Debit and Credit Cards.
    • Keep in mind, however, that we may still elect to block your card for your protection.

    For more information about this complimentary service, or to report any suspected fraud on your Tech CU Debit or Credit Cards, send us a secure message or contact a Tech CU representative at (408) 451-9111 or (800) 553-0880.

    You may also contact the Card Member Security team directly at (888) 241-2440 or call them collect at (909) 941-1034 from outside the U.S.
