Card Protection - Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union

Card Protection

Safeguarding your cards and identity from the risk of exposure starts with keeping constant control of your cards and card numbers.

Following are some additional safety tips you should use.
  • Sign your cards with permanent ink as soon as you receive them.
  • Memorize your personal identification number. Choose PINs that are not easy to guess.
  • Do not respond to unsolicited e-mails requesting financial information.
  • Carry only cards you're going to use.
  • Watch the merchant perform your card transaction.
  • When shopping online, make sure you only enter your card information on trusted sites that have a yellow padlock on the bottom browser window frame.
  • Never give your personal or financial information out to anyone contacting you via phone. Hang up and call your financial institution using a phone number you are familiar with to verify the call.
  • Report lost or stolen cards immediately.
  • Never lend your cards to anyone or leave them unattended anywhere.
  • Never throw receipts in the trash where others can get them.

To report a lost or stolen card, call 912-236-4400 during business hours or 800-523-4175 (Debit cards) or 800-682-6075 (Credit cards) after business hours.
