Debit Card Security

Text Fraud Alerts

Keeping your account safe and secure is our highest priority. We’ve added Text Fraud Alerts as part of our debit card protection program.

As part of our debit card protection program, we provide text alerts noted as "1st Bank Yuma FraudAlert" when suspicious activity is detected on your 1st Bank Yuma debit card. If you receive a “1st Bank Yuma FraudAlert,” reply Yes or No to confirm or deny the activity. If you reply No (the activity is fraudulent), you’ll quickly receive a follow up text to let you know that a SHAZAM fraud specialist will call you soon to help protect your account. We’ll also automatically block your debit card to prevent any additional fraudulent activity.

If you reply Yes (the activity was legitimate), you can continue to use your debit card as normal. If you don’t reply to the text, or your phone number is not a mobile number, we’ll attempt to reach you via automated voice call.

Text message alerts from: 72718

Automated phone calls from: 855-219-5399

Make sure to save these numbers to your contacts so you don’t miss any alerts. This added protection to your debit card is automatic and text message alerts are free.

To ensure you are receiving these Text Fraud Alerts, confirm your contact information is updated with us.

Important: We will never request card or account information via text, phone or email. SHAZAM is our debit card processor.
