We take your privacy and account security very seriously

Here’s what happens when we detect suspicious activity on your account:

  1. Advantis Fraud Center activates your alert process
  2. You receive your Advantis Fraud Center alert(s)
  3. Your alert will ask you to confirm you authorized the suspicious charge
  4. You respond to your alert as quickly as possible
  5. Based on your response, we can confirm your account is secure, or we can deploy additional fraud-prevention measures to stop fraud in its tracks

Automatic enrollment in fraud alert by email and phone call

We continually monitor your debit card(s) for suspicious and fraudulent activity. If Advantis Fraud Center detects a suspicious transaction on one of your card accounts, we will immediately alert you and take immediate action to help protect your account.

Optional enrollment in fraud alert by text (SMS)

Because different members have unique banking and communication preferences, we offer you the option to also enroll in fraud alert by text.

IMPORTANT: You need to respond to a fraud alert

Advantis Fraud Center alerts are legitimate messages. For your account security, you need to respond to any Advantis Fraud Center alert as quickly as possible.

  • When we detect a suspicious transaction, it’s prudent to protect you and your account by blocking card activity. We need to determine if the activity is authorized by you, or not.
  • When you respond to the alert immediately, we can take appropriate action based on whether or not the transaction was authorized by you or another account holder.

Rest assured, shortly after you respond to a fraud alert and let us know that you authorized the transaction in question, your card activity will be quickly restored.

Note: Advantis will never send you an email, phone, or text message asking for your personal or account information. If you receive a message asking for this information, do NOT respond to the message. Instead, contact Advantis immediately by phone at 503-785-2528 or 1-800-547-5532.

How to opt out of fraud alerts by text 

If you receive a fraud alert by text, but you wish to opt out of future text alerts, please take these steps:

  1. Contact Advantis to indicate you did or did not authorize the transaction
  2. Reply “STOP” to the text message.

You’ll continue to receive fraud alerts by email and phone in the future.*
