Debit Card Security
En Fact Notifications will ask the cardholder to enter the primary account ZIP code. This ZIP code must match what is on the cardholder record in our system. Once the ZIP code is validated, the cardholder will be provided with the transaction information. If the cardholder is unable to correctly enter the ZIP code, they will be transferred to the Call Center to speak to a Call Center Analyst.
En Fact Notifications will leave a message at the first available answering machine. If there are additional phone numbers available, En Fact Notifications attempts to contact your cardholder by phone at each of the numbers you provide. The VRU makes two attempts to each number in 2- hour increments, each day for two days. The VRU will leave only one message and one contact number.
Depending on where in the message the cardholder hangs up, EnFact Notifications will discontinue calling for the day and continue calling on day two. If it is day two, the case will be closed with an unconfirmed status, or EnFact Notifications will continue to call any remaining numbers until the call strategy is complete for the day.
EnFact Notifications will state your financial institution’s name and the cardholder’s name.
The cardholder will be automatically transferred to the Call Center to work with a Call Center
Analyst and have their card restricted.
The cardholder will need the toll-free number (866-750-9107), the Personal Message Code, and the Primary Account ZIP code.
The financial institution must follow up on any unconfirmed fraud with the cardholder
