Notice | Potential Debit Card Fraud

On Monday morning (April 6, 2015), the Connexus Fraud Department discovered cases of fraud on some Connexus debit cards, appearing to stem from a previous large retail merchant data breach.  Per Connexus protocol, the fraud team worked diligently to contact the members whose debit cards appeared to be impacted. Existing debit cards with fraudulent activity have been closed and new ones have been ordered.

As a reminder, Connexus issues a full refund for fraudulent transactions and any overdraft or transfer fees that may have been incurred as a result of the fraud.

When I returned home late last night, I had a phone message from the Fraud Service team that I had suspicious activity on my Connexus card. I called immediately tho it was late, and was told that an attempt by someone in Canada to remove funds had been denied. First they attempted and succeeded with a .43 cent charge, then tried $416. The Fraud rep was very courteous and helpful, cancelled my card and advised that I replace it. I was contacted by Connexus this morning before I had a chance to call them. I found this customer service to be excellent!! Thanks!
