Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your name, Social Security number, credit card number or other identifying information, without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes. Educate yourself with valuable information from the sites listed below.
Your Grow Visa® Platinum Credit Card and Grow Visa Debit Card feature enhanced security safeguards to protect against fraud, and with Visa's Zero Liability Policy, you will not be held liable in cases of unauthorized use of your card. As an extra measure of security, card activity is monitored by Visa's FALCON fraud protection service, which is designed to recognize unusual card usage. When FALCON spots something out of the ordinary, a live agent will call you to verify the activity. If you can't be reached, the agent will leave the following number for you to call: 866.296.6903 for debit or credit cards.
NOTE: if an agent does call and leaves another number, don't call back! This could be a "phishing scam," an attempt to lure you into giving your confidential information for fraudulent use. Instead, report the incident to our Financial Card Services Department.
