SMS Alerts


You’re never out of the loop when it comes to your money

With SMS alerts, you can know what your money is doing 24/7. That’s why banks are increasingly offering transaction alert services to their cardholders. Check with your bank to see if you can sign up for SMS transaction alerts today.

SMS alerts are triggered whenever your card is used. This way, you can detect fraudulent activity—anytime and anywhere.

If you’re alerted to potential fraudulent activity, give your issuing bank a call to check. Banks offer liability protection policies that protects you from unauthorised transactions.

Safety tips on what to do about phishing:

If you’ve ever received an unsolicited call, SMS or e-mail, asking you for sensitive information like your card number and PIN, or username and password, that’s phishing.

You may be asked for your card number, expiry date and 3-digit secure code (on back of your card), when making an online purchase or telephone order, but you should never divulge your PIN.

Contact your bank if you think you’ve been phished. And as a safety precaution, it’s a good idea to register your cards for SMS alerts so you’ll be alerted of unauthorised transactions.
