Taking a trip? Don’t forget to notify your bank
You’ve packed your suitcase, planned your itinerary, and checked into your flight. Surely you’ve done everything you need to prepare for your vacation, right?
*Please notify your bank before using your debit card when traveling abroad.
Passumpsic Bank does whatever we can to protect you from identity theft. If we spot transactions in an unfamiliar location, we may assume your card is being used fraudulently.
When you let us know that you’re going away, we share that with our fraud detection system. This prevents “abnormal” spending patterns from triggering a block on your card.

Help Prevent Fraud with Text Alerts
Your Passumpsic Bank debit card has enhanced fraud alerts that allow us to contact you via text message to verify that a debit card transaction is valid. If you choose to opt out of this feature we will continue to communicate with you by phone, email and/or letter to warn you of possible fraudulent activity. Please note that this could result in an interruption of your debit card access.
Once we verify we have your correct cell phone number, you will receive a text from Passumpsic Bank. The message will read: Passumpsic SavingsBank Card Fraud Alerts activation text.
