Don’t be stranded!
Going across the country or around the world? Before you leave home, click on “Travel Notification” on the Online Services menu in Online Banking to submit travel plans to be added to your Altra Credit and/or Debit Card. This minimizes the chance of cards being declined. Enter the last 4 digits of your cards, travel dates and destinations, and the best way to contact you.
You can also call Altra’s Member Contact Center at 800-755-0055 or visit your local branch to speak to a member service specialist so we can add a note on your account. Whichever method you choose, please allow one business day to have your cards updated with your plans.
Beware: Tax Scam Calls
People across the US are getting phone calls or emails from scam artists who pretend to be from the IRS or Department of the Treasury. They demand immediate payment of overdue taxes and threaten lawsuits or jail. They look and sound convincing, but they are trying to steal your money and your identity.
The IRS does NOT make initial contact with taxpayers by phone or email. Click the link below for tips from the IRS to help you avoid being a victim of a tax scam:
Scam Text Message: Debit Card Blocked
Members and non-members who have mobile numbers with a 608 area code are receiving scam text messages saying their Debit card is blocked. There is a link in the text to sign in to unlock, which takes them to a fake Altra mobile banking site.
If you receive one of these texts, DO NOT CLICK the link or enter any personal information. Never access any mobile financial site unless you are using the official app icon from the app you downloaded from iTunes or the Google Play Store.
