North State Bank Visa® debit cards can be used to make purchases anywhere Visa and STAR cards are accepted and offer the latest in debit card technology, including:
When transactions are processed using chip technology (also known as EMV), unique data is created for each transaction that cannot be used again. That means if a retailer’s payment processing data is breached, the debit card information on file cannot be used by the hacker.

Fraud Center uses advanced technology to review debit card transactions in near real-time. If a fraudulent charge is suspected, Fraud Center will contact you immediately. To make sure we can reach you quickly and easily, take a moment to confirm your mobile number and email address with your local North State Bank office.
HOW IT WORKS
|First, Fraud Center will send an email notification to the primary cardholder. The email will prompt you to reply “fraud” or “no fraud” to let us know if the transaction was authorized.|
|Next, if you do not respond to the email within one minute, Fraud Center will send a text message to the mobile number we have on file. The text will prompt you to reply “fraud” or “no fraud” to let us know if the transaction was authorized.|
|Then, if Fraud Center doesn’t receive a response to the email or text, you will receive an automated phone call prompting you to confirm or deny if the suspicious transaction was fraudulent. During this call, you will have the option to speak with a fraud analyst.|
Fraud Center will repeat these attempts to reach you until the possible fraud has been confirmed or denied. In some instances, your card will be blocked for use until Fraud Center receives your response. Fraud Center messages will not ask for your PIN or account number. Never give your account number or PIN out via text message or email.
Automatic Service: You do not have to enroll. All North State Bank debit card activity is automatically monitored with Fraud Center.
