F&M Debit Mastercard with Text Alerts
With fraud monitoring from F&M, keeping your card safe is as easy as sending a text.
At F&M, we want to ensure using your debit card is always as safe and convenient as possible. That is why we use text alerts as part of our ongoing fraud monitoring program. Our Text alert service allows you to keep tabs on suspicious activity instantly.
How It Works
With text fraud alerts, if our system detects suspicious activity on your debit card, you will receive a text message with details about the suspected transaction. All you have to do is respond to the text to confirm the transaction.
If you indicate the transaction is fraud, you will receive another message with a number to call for follow-up. If not, you are all set. The system will mark the transaction as legitimate and you can get on with your day – simple as that.
Contact us at 800.451.7843 or visit your local office. We will verify your cell phone number is currently on file and you will receive an initial text enrollment message with instructions to verify your enrollment from code 20733 by replying YES and then you are all set. If there is suspicious activity, we will send a text alert right away.
