Fraud protection and security for your Visa cards

Choose from a couple of options that will keep you alert to fraud and enhance your card protection: 1) Our free, two-way text alerts or 2) An opt-in service with Visa Purchase Alerts.

Oregon State Credit Union text alerts

Defend yourself against credit or debit card fraud by signing up for our free, two-way text alerts. It’s the best and fastest way to respond to potential fraudulent purchases made to your debit or credit card. The alerts are texted to you anywhere you have a cell connection. If you see a fraud alert for a purchase you didn’t make, you simply reply to the text message that it is confirmed fraud. It’s free, and signing up is fast and easy.

Travel notification

Going on vacation or traveling for business? Communicate with us ahead of time to help minimize interrupted service with your Oregon State Credit Union Visa card while you're on your trip. Knowing your plans, we'll be able to work even more effectively with our fraud monitoring service to assess spending activity on your card(s), if the activity is legitimate, and if transactions are occurring outside normal spending patterns.
