For Your Peace of Mind – Text Alert Fraud Prevention
We’re looking out for you! Sign up for our new smsGuardian™ service and you’ll receive text messages regarding activity on your credit and debit cards. You'll only receive text messages if your transaction falls into one of the categories listed below. If you receive a text about a transaction that you think is fraudulent, you can reply immediately and your card will be blocked from further criminal activity. If you receive this message and you know the purchase is legitimate, you don’t need to do anything.
Feeling safer already? Give smsGuardian a try. You can enroll any of your Edmonton State Bank debit cards in this service. Visit our enrollment website to register your credit/debit cards and mobile devices.
Here’s an example of what the service looks like in action. You might receive a text message similar to this:
Guardian Alert on card 12341 at XYZ Store2 for $500.003. Reply AA1234NO* if unauthorized. Reply STOP to cancel alerts.
1This will be the last four digits of your card number
If you receive this message and you know the purchase is legitimate, you don’t need to do anything. If you think that it’s fraud, you reply “AA1234NO” (per this example – Note: this will change with each text received) and your card will be blocked. You can then come into one of our branches and order a new card, at your convenience. You can choose to cancel this service at any time by replying with the message “STOP.”
It’s pretty easy, and very reassuring. Visit our enrollment site today and start enjoying some peace of mind.
Here are a few other details:
