Let's work together to take the right precautions
We use debit cards everywhere we go, and not everyone has good intentions. So it's important to be aware when making purchases online, in-store and elsewhere.
Decrease your chances of online fraud
- Use Card Control within your Envision Credit Union app and Online Banking to manage your card and even freeze it.
- Regularly monitor your account for suspicious activity. Set a daily reminder to check your account.
- Avoid a public Wi-Fi, and use a secure and private Internet server when shopping online.
- Stick to reputable websites. A web address that includes “https” is a good indicator it is legitimate.
- Apps make everything easy, but be sure to download it from a trusted source such as the Apple App Store or Android Market.
- Use a pop-up blocker to avoid spam advertisements.
- When in doubt, contact us. We’ll help ensure your accounts are safe and secure.
- Update your contact information with us so we can help you solve the matter swiftly in the event you experience fraud.
- Contact us immediately to report a suspicious or fraudulent charge.
- We will never ask for your Personal Identification Number (PIN), CVV code (three digits on the back of your debit card), or your complete Social Security Number.

You will receive applicable paperwork and be informed of any required transaction documentation. The Chargeback Member Services Team also will credit your Envision account, if applicable.

* Please note if your case involves the fraudulent use of your card number by an unknown party, or you have been the victim of skimming activity, please file a police report with your local law enforcement agency. Often an escalation in debit or credit card fraud, reported to the applicable agencies, is the only way for law enforcement officials to become aware of the activity so that they can then take steps to apprehend the perpetrators.
