The Country Blocking service allows the Credit Union to block countries and US States to reduce your Credit Union’s exposure to fraudulent transactions from non-chip transactions.
All accounts are monitored for suspicious or unusual card activity. Without notifying us of your travels, transactions for high amounts, out of the country, or more frequent than usual can result in your card being blocked for security purposes, until we can contact you. Contacting us and MasterCard® will avoid any disruptions to your card use while you are away from your normal business area.
The information we need is the dates travelling, location of destination, all stops/layovers and intended card used (Debit Card or Global Payment® MasterCard®) and card number.
In regards to Credit Union MasterCard® we ask that you phone CUETS at 1-877-770-0738 to notify them of your travel plans.
