Taking Proactive Steps
There are a number of things you can do to minimize the risk of fraud. We recommend the following:
Update Account Contact Information

and click the Profile.
Monitor Your Account
Take advantage of Mountain America’s Alerts & Notifications
. This free service gives you the ability to receive text or email alerts based on transactions, balance limits, approvals and more. Alerts & Notifications can be set up on the Alerts tab within Online Branch or by speaking with a Service Representative.
Notify Mountain America of Travel Plans
If you plan on traveling, take a moment to notify our Service Center. This allows us to place a travel note on your account and will limit any unnecessary inconveniences when you use your card for out-of-state transactions. You can easily find the Service Center phone number on the back of your Visa® Credit or Debit card. You may also set up travel notes through our mobile app. Simply select Card Manager and then View and Schedule Travel.
