Digital Banking Tips, Fraud Education, More!

Helpful Hints


• Choose a PIN that is difficult for someone else to figure out. Never use your birthday, phone number, or SSN. Make it as random as possible. Never give your PIN to anyone.
• Debit cards have daily limits set for your protection. If you are going to be doing a lot of shopping or will be making a big purchase, you can call our Electronic Services Department and have these limits temporarily raised.
• Only shop on secure websites. DO NOT SHOP ON SOCIAL MEDIA SITES! Before you order anything online, check for a security symbol such as a padlock or “https” in the URL or address field. These symbols mean your personal and account information with be encrypted and therefore safer.
• Overdraft fees are no fun for anyone. Be aware of what is in your account to avoid spending more than you have. Use online banking or your mobile app before you spend so that you are aware of your account balances hopefully avoiding overdraft fees.
• Use the Great Rivers Bank app to check your accounts daily. You can easily spot suspicious activity when you are keeping an eye on it. If you notice anything suspicious call customer service immediately.
As always if you have any questions about your debit card stop by one of our Great Rivers Banks branches or give us a call at (217) 335-2393!
