The fraud monitor service may detect unusual or suspicious transactions on your card. A text message is sent to your mobile phone number asking you to confirm if the transaction is valid. You will then be able to reply “Yes” to confirm the transaction is valid or “No” to block the transaction if not authorized by you. If you respond “Yes”, you may continue to use your card as usual. If you respond “No”, the transaction will be blocked and a fraud prevention representative will call you to further review the card activity and transactions.
