If you are continuing to shop at merchants that swipe your card and are not EMV compliant, information from the magnetic strip on your debit card is at risk of being compromised. While we have issued debit cards to all of our members containing an EMV chip, 40% of merchants are still not EMV compliant and continue to utilize the magnetic strip, leaving your card vulnerable to these instances of compromise.

The last three compromised card lists have involved merchants such as Arby’s, Wendy’s and now the latest, Chipotle. We are dedicated to ensuring your accounts are safe and secure from fraud. Should you choose to continue to shop at merchants who are not EMV compliant, we suggest using cash.

Another way to secure your accounts is to enroll your Debit Card in MobiMoney. MobiMoney allows you to turn your card on/off and restrict certain types of transactions from happening on your debit card. This can also significantly reduce the chance of fraud on your account.
