While First Liberty Bank's debit card fraud prevention system will legitimately initiate a phone call to debit card holders regarding suspicious activity on their debit cards, cardholders will never be asked for their card number, PIN or account number if the call is legitimate. No sensitive information is requested. The analysts will identify themselves by name, state they are calling on behalf of First Liberty Bank, and only ask for confirmation of specific activity on a debit card.
It is essential to notify customer service at First Liberty Bank when you will be out of town, even in the U.S., or if you foresee any debit card activity that is not typical for your account. Also, it is important to notify us if your contact information changes. If the fraud analyst cannot reach you, your account will be put on hold until we can confirm the charges to your account.
If you need to report a lost or stolen debit card or have any concerns about unusual activity on any of your accounts, please call this number immediately: 1-866-546-8273, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Remember, the longer you delay, the more time the thief has to make charges on your account.
