Are you planning a fun summer vacation with the sun shining and summer in full swing? Unfortunately, scammers know that many families plan to get away in the summer and will use this as an opportunity to steal your hard-earned funds and information. Below is a list of some common vacation scams and how to avoid them.
And, as a reminder, you can let us know if you're leaving town for vacation through American 1 Online Banking using the Travel Notice feature. Our 24-hour fraud monitoring service continuously looks for any unusual transactions for where and how you typically use your card. When you schedule your card to be in travel mode, our system knows that any purchases during your set timeframe in the state or country you designated are okay for approval.
