Notice of Change to MasterCard Rules for Cardholder Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
MasterCard has changed its rule on zero cardholder liability for unauthorized transfers, effective October 17, 2014. The new rule eliminates the $50 liability limitation if conditions for zero liability are not met, which could result in higher cardholder liability in those situations. However, a cardholder will not be liable for an unauthorized transaction as long as the cardholder has exercised reasonable care in safeguarding the card from risk of loss or theft and becoming aware of a loss or theft, promptly reports the loss or theft to us. MasterCard is a registered trademark of MasterCard International Incorporated.
Important message regarding debit cards
Due to a recent increase in fraud, we have California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Nebraska, and Texas blocked so that only pin-based transactions will be approved. Your card cannot be used as a credit card while in those states.
We will continue to monitor this situation and will let you know when the block has been lifted. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.
