At Credit Union SA we are committed to keeping you and your money safe while transacting with us.
If you have lost or had your card stolen, report or replace any cards that are missing.
With all credit cards now requiring a Personal Identification Number (PIN), it’s very difficult for a thief to use a stolen credit card in any over-the-counter transaction. But that doesn’t mean you can let your guard down.
Aside from the obvious imperative of ensuring our systems remain resistant to unlawful access – which we’re constantly working to ensure – secure Internet Banking and Phone Banking is almost entirely a matter of protecting your passwords.
Operated by trained fraud identification specialists, our Fraud Bureau Service provides Credit Union SA members around-the-clock protection against fraudulent card transactions, 365 days a year.
