Fraud Detection

Jersey State Bank utilizes a fraud detection program to prevent unauthorized use of your Debit Card. The program tracks the type of transactions you usually perform with your Debit Card and then compares that behavior with each new transaction and characteristics of fraud. If something seems suspicious, you may be called at home or cell phone to verify the transaction.  Automated phone calls will come from (888)253-8962. If you are unavailable, a voice message will be left asking you to call and verify the transaction. If there is no reply, they will put a temporary block on your card. This program is for your protection as we try to eliminate Debit Card fraud.

If we have your cell phone number, you will receive a text alert when suspicious activity is detected on your JSB Debit Card.  Text message alerts will come from 37268If you receive a fraud alert, it is asking you if the transaction listed in valid (something you did).

  • If you reply YES (transaction is legitimate), you can continue using your card as normal.
  • If you reply NO (transaction is fraudulent), you will quickly receive a follow-up text notifying you that a Fraud Specialist will contact you very soon to help protect your account. We will automatically block your debit card to prevent further fraudulent transactions.
  • If you do not reply to the text, we will attempt to reach you via an automated voice call.

If you plan to use your Debit Card to purchase expensive items that are not typical of your card use, please contact the bank to notify us.  618-498-6466 or 618-786-2311.

Traveling Soon?

Contact the bank if you plan to use your Jersey State Bank Debit Card while traveling in the US or out of the country. Due to fraud concerns, many foreign countries or out of state transactions may be declined if we were unaware of your plans.  Please complete our Travel Notice with the dates and places you will be traveling so we can place you on an exception list.
