How We Keep You Safe

We are constantly monitoring debit card transactions for patterns or abnormalities in order to identify and prevent fraud on your account. Inspire FCU is committed to providing our members the best fraud-fighting tools to strengthen our defenses and help our members take immediate action against fraud. Should we identify suspicious transactions on your card, we will attempt to contact you about the activity via text message, email, or phone call to verify if the transaction was authorized by you.
How the Fraud Alerts work:
  • You will receive a notification of a suspected fraudulent transaction via text message, e-mail, or phone call.

  • You will reply YES (authorized) or NO (not authorized) to the text,e-mail or phone call for the transaction in question.

  • If the transaction is authorized (YES) please reattempt the transaction for approval.

  • If you do not recognize the transaction and reply NO, Inspire FCU will attempt to connect you with an Inspire FCU representative that will verify your recent transactions, close your current card, and assist in getting a new card issued to you.

Important Reminder

Inspire FCU will never contact you via phone, text, or email to request that you provide sensitive personal or account information such as your full debit card number, PIN or Online Banking password. As always Inspire FCU highly recommends you monitor your account for suspicious activity. In order for us to help protect your account, please contact us at 215-788-5270 or visit your local branch with any transaction or activity you do not recognize.
