What is a Visa Debit Card?
A Visa Debit Card is tied to a customer's designated account and is accepted anywhere Visa is accepted. A Debit Card can be used to make a purchase or to withdraw money from an ATM. When making a purchase, the consumer can use their Personal Identification Number (PIN) or sign the receipt. No bill is generated; the funds are removed from the designated account. Benefits of the Visa Debit Card include:
- Visa debit cards are accepted almost anywhere
- It works just like a check, only with nothing to write, no waiting time for approval, and no ID necessary
- The purchase amount is deducted directly from your checking account
- Access funds in accounts at any ATM
- And much more!

Visa Debit Cards are perfect for customers who like the convenience of a credit card but do not want to get a bill every month. Transactions are charged to the customer's checking account immediately. It is also perfect for customers who cannot get to the bank during normal business hours.

Here are some additional tips on protecting yourself from debit card fraud.
1. Unless absolutely required for a legitimate business purpose, avoid giving out your:
- Social Security number
- Date of Birth
- Address and ZIP code
- Phone number
- Card or account number
- Card expiration date
Your PIN is private; NEVER give it out!
2. In stores and at ATMs, always cover your card and PIN, and watch for;
- Cell phone cameras, mirrors, or other tools used to view cards and PINs
- People watching your transactions
- Cashiers taking your card out of sight; take it to the register yourself
- Any unusual activity at ATMs; if you feel uncomfortable, go to another ATM
3. Online, you should never respond to unsolicited emails that:
- Ask you to verify your card or account number; such emails are not sent by legitimate businesses
- Link to websites; such sites can look legitimate but may collect data or put spyware on your computer
