Due to a high volume of recent debit card fraud, we are asking our members to please log on to Verified by Visa and register your debit card. To access Verified by Visa, click the Verify Now link below. Once you click on the link, it will direct you to the Verified by Visa site where you will click to Activate Now and follow the directions provided. By registering your debit card, you will limit your liability as a Visa card holder.
Never give out your personal information, as fraudsters are using social engineering tactics to obtain enough information to enroll your card in Verified by Visa. Cardholders are contacted by email (phishing), phone (vishing), or text (smishing) to obtain the information.
Trius Federal Credit strives to prevent, detect, and resolve fraud on your Visa debit card, so we are offering this free Verified by Visa service. This service will confirm your identity with an extra password when you make online purchases. However, Trius Federal Credit Union strongly recommends that you do not use your debit card for any online purchases. Instead, when shopping online, we recommend using your credit card instead of your debit card because of consumer protection laws. This method offers more secure consumer protection laws, in case of fraud or billing disputes.
