Text Fraud Alerts
Forte Bank is now offering text fraud alerts for all debit card holders, including consumer, business and Health Savings Account customers.
All debit card holders are automatically enrolled in the program. The system will text you if it flags a transaction that is considered high risk or out of character for your typical purchases.
The initial text will ask you to verify an attempted purchase. If you confirm the purchase, you will receive a second text asking you to attempt the transaction again. If you did not attempt the transaction, you will be prompted to contact Forte Bank immediately and your card will be restricted.
Contact Deposit Operations at 262-670-3878 or any branch staff with any questions or concerns about text fraud alerts.
