We're Looking Out for YOU 24/7
Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States. These 21st century thieves rely on the Internet, digital devices and even the contents of your trash can in a effort to steal your identity and your money.
In an effort to protect our customers, we have partnered with smsGuardian*. This service is tied to your American State Bank Debit/ATM Card and will provide alerts to you via text message. These alerts are triggered based on situations in which your card was used.
You will receive text messages when your card:
- Has a purchase greater than $100
- is used out of state
- Is used for International transactions
- is used for fuel transactions (gas stations)
- is used but is not swiped (online purchases)
- if used more than 4 times in a 24 hour period
- declined authorizations
If the transaction is legitimate, you may simply ignore the message. However, if the transaction is fraudulent, you can reply to the smsGuardian text with the code that you received and your card will be blocked from future use.
