Card Alert Notifications

SecurLOCK Card Alerts

At First National Bank of Crossett, we are constantly working hard to protect you and your identification from fraud. As a result, we have implemented a new fraud alert system to notify you if fraudulent activity is attempted on your FNBC credit and debit card.

Protecting Your FNBC Card

With SecurLOCK, we monitor your card transactions and, if potential fraud is taking place, you can expect to be contacted immediately via text message, phone call, or email. All customers who currently have an active FNBC credit and/or debit card will be automatically enrolled in this FREE service.

How It Works:

  • A text message will be sent a customer's mobile phone when there is a suspicious transaction identified on an FNBC credit or debit card.
  • The customer simply replies to confirm or deny the transaction. If the customer verifies the transaction, the card will remain available for use. If the customer does not recognize the transaction, he or she will be advised on the next steps.
  • If we do not hear from the customer, we will attempt to verify the transaction by using the following sequence: mobile number, home number, work number, and an email message.
  • Do not reply to the text message with any personal or confidential card information.
  • If you wish to opt-out of the text message alerts for this service, upon receiving the text message, simply reply STOP.

Help Us Protect You

  • A credit or debit card from First National Bank of Crossett is a valuable tool of convenience and security. With SecurLOCK, now your card is safer than ever before. We value your safety and security, so please keep us up-to-date with your current contact information to ensure we can inform you quickly if we suspect unusual account activity.
  • Never share personal account information - SecurLOCK will never request sensitive account information via text message or email. Don't provide your SSN, account number(s), card PIN, mailing address, etc.

Q. Is this service 24 hours, or only in a certain window?

A. In other areas of business, we have calls only going ou tduring certain hours so cardholders aren’t being called after normal waking hours. Emails will be sent 24 hours. Text will be sent from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the cardholder’s time zone. Calls will be sent from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the cardholder’s time zone. Texts and voice calls pending from the night before will be triggered the following morning at the applicable time noted above. Agents are available 24/7.

Q. How can I stop text messages if I don’t want to receive them any longer?

A. All you need to do is respond back to the SMS text alert with the word STOP. U.S. consumers who have service through AT&T, Verizon,Sprint, and T-Mobile will not be charged message or data rates for our fraud alerts. We absorb that cost for you!

Q. Can the alerts be sent to customers travelling internationally?

A. These customers have U.S. numbers, but are travelling overseas, possibly on a non-US carrier. We are unable to send text or phone calls internationally, but please make sure your email address is current as we can always email you 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Q. How do customers enroll?

A. We have already included you in these enhanced services as part of our fraud protection services.

Q. What triggers these alerts?

A. Transactions that we have identified as potential fraud trigger the alerts.

Q. If I receive an alert, does that automatically block my account from further purchases?

A. The majority of suspected fraud accounts will be blocked,just as they are today. However, some lower risk items may not be declined.

Q. If I respond back that the transaction(s) are valid, will you automatically unblock my account?

A. Yes, though please keep in mind that it could take 5 – 10 minutes for a block to be removed in some situations.

Q. If a transaction is declined due to suspected fraud, but I validate that I did make the purchase, can I try to complete the purchase again?

A. Once the alert is updated in our fraud system, you can attempt the transaction again, usually within 5 – 10 minutes of the initial call/text/email to validate activity.

Q. What if my “yes” or “no” text response has a typo?

A. The system will accept many common typo variations of the“yes” or “no” text message response. If the system cannot understand what wastyped, it will generate a message to call a representative for help.

Q. Is there a difference for consumers and businesses cardholders?

A. No.

Q. Can I establish preferences through my mobile app?

A. Communicate alerts are not configured through a mobile app, but rather through our fraud systems. The standard order of engagement is:

1) Text

2) Voice Call

3) Email

Alerts generated overnight result in an email only until calling and texting hours are available. Text will be sent from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 the cardholder’s time zone. Calls will be sent from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 the cardholder’s time zone.

Q. How do incoming and outgoing voice calls work?

A. SecurLOCK actions are triggered by today’s existing fraud alerts through the Falcon system. If a mobile phone is on record, a text alert will be triggered first. All numbers on record that are identified as a mobile phone will be utilized. SecurLOCK has technology that allows it to determine if a phone number is a mobile or land line, so indicators within the processing platform are not required. If we do not receive a response to the text(s), the system sends an automated voice call asking you to confirm if authorizations are valid or unrecognized. If you select “Not Recognized,” the call is transferred to an agent to confirm the fraudulent transaction(s). If there is no response to the text or voice call, an email is sent requesting that you confirm the transactions are valid.
