At CORE Credit Union, we want your next trip to be as smooth as possible.
To help prevent uninterrupted service with your CORE Visa Debit Card, please
notify us prior to your departure.
Notifying us will help ensure your Debit Card purchases are not blocked by
our fraud protection service. Without notification of your travel, your card
may be blocked when transactions outside your normal spending habits are identified.
From time to time, blocks may be placed on specific cities, states, regions
or countries for your protection due to fraudulent activity trends. Our most
recent block is the state of Florida for purchases requiring your signature
but you may use your debit card with your PIN to complete a transaction.
For more detailed information and/or to notify the Credit
Union of your travel plans, please call us at 912-764-9846 or email us at
When using your Visa Check
Visa Check Card transactions can be done in a number
of ways: sign your receipt, pay online, over the phone, or enter your PIN.
But not all Check Card transactions are processed the same way. When you
select "CREDIT" you receive a higher level of protection, safety,
and convenience that you don't receive when you enter your 4 digit PIN #.
Even though all Check Card transactions clear through your checking account,
there are some important advantages you receive when you select "CREDIT".
