One of the great perks of my Merchants Bank Visa ScoreCard Credit Card is that I can book a car rental through the Travel Advantage rewards. It's so easy...you just call the 1-800 number and they take care of everything for you. One less thing to worry about when I'm booking our family trip.

How does Merchants Bank detect fraud on my credit card?

We work with our trusted partner, Visa® Falcon Fraud Prevention Services, to monitor fraud trends and detect fraudulent transactions on your credit card accounts 24/7.

Our partner, Falcon, will call, text or email you in the event of a suspicious transaction. Falcon will make you aware that the call is being placed on behalf of Merchants Bank. If you cannot be reached after the first attempt, the Merchants Bank Credit Card Department will place a follow-up call.

When our partner contacts you, they will ask you for some identifying information - such as the last four digits of your Social Security Number. They will never ask you for your full number. If you are uncomfortable and don't want to speak with our partner, please call the Merchants Bank Credit Card Department directly at (833) 794-0032 and verify the transaction or let us know that you did not make the purchase in question.

Should I notify Merchants Bank if I want to use my credit card while on vacation or a business trip?

Yes. It’s important for you to contact Merchants before you leave to ensure the best service while you are out of town. If you make purchases in a state or country where you don't normally use your Merchants Bank credit card, we may think these transactions are fraudulent unless we know otherwise.

When contacting the Bank regarding your travel plans, we will ask for the following information:
  • Dates of your trip(s)
  • Exact travel locations
  • How we can contact you while you’re gone
To place a travel alert:
  • Call us at (833) 794-0032 or your local branch
  • Submit a travel notice in Online & Mobile Banking
We strongly recommend that you carry more than one form of payment during your trip. Interruptions within any card network are always a very real possibility. Carrying multiple forms of payment reduces frustrations when trying to complete a needed purchase.
